Dr. Kelly Clifton awarded two OTREC research projects in 2010

Dr. Clifton was awarded two new research grants as part of the 2010-2011 OTREC grant cycle. The project “Contextual Influences on Trip Generation” partners with Metro and surrounding communities to examine trip rates for land development across a variety of urban conditions. In partnership with the Portland Development Commission, City of Portland, Travel Oregon and Bikes Belong, the “Economic Impacts of Cycling” will look at the travel and consumer behavior of cyclists and other patrons in commercial centers with varying bicycle infrastructure.
