A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Bikeway project stalls over undercrossing

Written February 3rd, 2020 by Hasso Hering

This is supposed to be the year ODOT builds the Albany segment of the long-proposed Albany-Corvallis bikeway. But the project has hit another snag: It requires the trail to cross under a railroad trestle, and the railroad has said no.


Neighbors air concerns over N.A. bikeway

Written July 23rd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

About two dozen property owners showed up Tuesday for a neighborhood meeting about the North Albany segment of the planned Albany-Corvallis Bikeway. Some of them voiced questions and concerns, but the main news for me was that the project was still on and the Albany segment is scheduled to be built in 2020.


Finding a bikeway route that works

Written March 15th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

A planning committee in Benton County has been looking for the best feasible route for a potential bikeway between Albany and Corvallis. A couple of weeks ago it picked three alternatives for closer attention. But two of the three look impractical, at least to me.


Why the path would be better

A day after the Albany City Council narrowly confirmed its longstanding commitment to an off-highway bikeway from Spring Hill to Scenic Drive, I got on my bike and took another look at how things are now.


Albany bike project almost killed

Written January 25th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The planned Albany leg of the proposed bikeway to Corvallis survived a city council vote Wednesday night, but just barely. It took the mayor’s tie-breaking vote to keep the project alive.


Expect action on Albany bikeway

Written January 22nd, 2017 by Hasso Hering

In September 2014 the Albany City Council said it would help pay for the Albany leg of the proposed Albany-Corvallis Bikeway. Now the council is being asked to authorize a formal agreement with Benton County to that effect.


Look what’s painted on the street

Written January 20th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Bike lanes in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue! In both directions, no less. Albany has no streets wide enough for anything like that, but I was glad  to see that in the nation’s capital, cycling was regarded well enough to try to make it relatively easy and safe on the most prominent street.
