    Improvements for bicycles and pedestrians should be provided as a matter of course. This route provides better access to transit and destinations than the Old River Road route, but will never be as pleasant. For pedestrians this should be the primary route,with Old River Road the primary route for bikes.

    This is the best option for active transportation and should be preferred.

    Please consider renewing talks to get the railroad to play nice and allow use of the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge for a bike/ped crossing over the Willamette.

    need a complete route off HWY 43 thru Lake O. I have been hit there 2 times, both times the driver was at fault. need it through all the way to Twilliger and or to the Sellwood Bridge.

    Continuing up through Rohr Park and west to the southern end of "downtown" is a better route than going over to Hy 43 sooner

    Part of hwy 43 is good for cyclists ( in front of Marylhurst) other parts are dangerous. The storm grates and manhole covers are accidents waiting to happen. Actually not waiting; I crashed after hitting a manhole cover near Burgerville and ended up in the ER. An officer stopped to see if I needed an ambulance and suggested that I sue the city. This was quite a few years ago but the road is still in the same condition. There is a lot of cycle traffic on HWY 43 . This would be a high priority for me.

    This is the fastest most efficent route from Lake Oswego to West Linn and Oregon City for everyday commuters

    This is a recreational route which is good for weekend family rides between George Rogers Park and Mary Young Park.

    Not quite as steep as Hidden Springs. Also, this lines a bicylist up with the Old River Road route to go north. Bike lanes a possibility here.

    Incredibly steep roadway, so a separated facility (cycle track for bikes, sidewalks for peds) will likely be needed here.

    Acceptable route. Consider improving/widening the bike/ped routes through the S-curves near McVey. Protecting these modes through the curves due to the steepness of the road and the speeds.
    The intersection of McVey/OR43 is problematic for bikes and peds due to the free right in the SB direction.
    Bike route on OR43 through Lake Oswego is less than desirable, as outside lanes are only 13' wide. A wider lane is desirable, but not feasible with the building setbacks. An alternate route through Foothills may be better.

    Great alternative to bikes/peds on Hwy 43. Consider extending the route further north to Tryon Cove Park.

    This will connect to a few of Lake Oswego TSP projects.

    The route along North State Street in LO is dangerous. With four lanes of traffic, there isn't enough room for bikes. Also, you have to ride further away from the curb due to the storm drains.

    would like to see this route extended toward Lake Grove (E.g. Iron Mountain Road, Waluga Rd., and Carman Rd.

    What about the extension of this route from Geo Rogers Park to connect at Foothills Park? People don't much enjoy walking on Hwy 43 and sucking up all that exhaust. I know I don't walk there -- never will.

    I don't see in this study a consideration for a route from Lake Oswego into Portland (probably because it involves Multnomah County as well). In my opinion, as a bike rider in Lake Oswego, this is the most critical missing corridor. All options currently available are dangerous. And yet this route is likely the one that would get greatest use by bicycle commuters.

    This is the recreational route. The HWY 43 is for active transportation and commuting.

    This is the "transportation" or commuter route. The one closer to the water is the recreation or "scenic" route.

    More hiking/walking trails should be added to this area. There is much potential to make West Linn and Lake Oswego/Stafford area great for hiking. Alot of people like to hike and not bike.

    Willamette area of West Linn has been left out. It has wonderful walking/biking and delightful and authentic atmoshere and energy. Big Mistake
    Also there are many more walking trails not identified.

    /this looks like a great route! Any portions on HWY 43 should have a safe and buffered bikeway.

    I think there should be another PAT along Rosemount to service the south and west parts of Lake Oswego. As for OR 43, it's a fine corridor if it's completed, I have only traveled south on it.

    Would rather have this route stay along the rivier and avoid OR43 through downtown Lake Oswego. Far too many vehicles with no bikes lanes in Lake Oswego. If Bike lanes were present on OR43 in downtown Lake Oswego, this would be ok as the posted speed is 25.

    Old River Dr. is preferred over OR43 due to lower traffic volumes and speeds.
