Grande Ronde River Greenway

The City of La Grande has initiated construction of this project with a grant in the amount of $841,100 from the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) Flexible Funds Program.  This program was established in February, 2010, to support sustainable non-highway transportation projects, programs and services that positively impact modal connectivity, the environment, mobility and access, livability, energy use and the overall operation of the transportation system.

The funds the City received from the OTC Flexible Funds Program have been applied to the Phase I construction of a 200-foot-long bicycle/pedestrian bridge connecting Riverside Park, on the north side of the river, with a yet to be constructed path and parking lot adjacent to May Lane on the south.  This phase will construct approximately 2,300 feet of new paved path.
