This represented an important step in assuring that bicyclists and pedestrians would have access to Oregon roads and, after only 40 years, ODOT already has provided more than half of the bike lanes that it considers as needed along urban state highways (sarcasm intended). However, perhaps it should have been called the Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Bill as about 2/3 of the money spent has been used to build sidewalks, which also are essential to personal mobility.
