SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Oregon Transportation Commission seeks your input as it continues working through how to spend more than $2 billion in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

The commission is considering the tradeoffs between various ways of dividing limited money between different parts of the transportation system.

There are five options that will help advance Oregon’s transportation goals, and now is your chance to inform the commission on which one you prefer before it selects the final one in December.

You have a number of ways to learn more and weigh in.

To learn more about the options under consideration and weigh in on which one you think best meets Oregon’s transportation needs, visit the STIP online open house before it closes on Nov. 16.

  1. How would I??? I would spend it all on “blue ribbon” committees, extra government programs, politically connected consultants, bike lanes, and bureaucrats. Like they do now.

  2. Start by hiring some competent engineers then build bypass’s for SISTERS, Madras, Terrebonne, Redmond and Bend then spend the rest on making 97 4 lanes from North to South.
