Bicycle Corral Project

 

The Ford Family Foundation Community Leadership Cohort No. 3, a team completing a year-long course in community development, is working with the Klamath Trails Alliance to design, build and install two bicycle corrals in beautiful downtown Klamath Falls. 


"We’re really excited to see Klamath Falls continue to develop it’s bicycle infrastructure which helps to increase the health and vitality of the community through this type of initiative," said Adam Burwell, KTA Board of Directors.  


The two locations set to receive the first bicycle corrals are:

  • 11th St. and Klamath Ave. as part of the new Sky Lakes Wellness Center
  • 8th St. and Main St. in front of the Daily Bagel

If all goes as planned, the ribbon cutting should take place toward the end of August.
