Come visit us at the Philomath Frolic & Rodeo!

The project team will be hosting an information kiosk at the Philomath Frolic & Rodeo on Saturday July 9, 2016, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. This event provides an opportunity to discuss transportation needs in the city, collect community input, and share information about the TSP update process.

We are currently finishing the evaluation of existing transportation conditions in Philomath. We’d like to hear your thoughts on what types of improvements should be made a priority. If you’re in the area, please stop by, talk to our staff, and tell us what you think!

Information to be shared at the kiosk is posted here.
