Public Works News Update #3:

We’re working with the City of Keizer to improve Verda Lane. With an elementary and middle school nearby, our goal is to create a safer route for pedestrians and bicycles.

The project will look at:

· Adding sidewalks and bike lanes.

· Upgrading or adding drainage features to improve water flow in the area.

· Better defining driveway accesses by adding curb and gutter.

You might see us in the area over the next several weeks as we look at how some of the planned improvements will impact existing properties, driveways, trees and mailboxes. 

This fall we’re planning to have a community in-person open house at the City of Keizer Civic Center, located at 930 Chemawa Road NE, Keizer.  
You can visit the project webpage to sign up for email updates and to receive an invite to the open house.
