[ARCHIVED] City Manager Gary Milliman Elected as SWACT Vice Chair

City Manager Gary Milliman was elected last week to serve as Vice Chair for the South West Area Commission on Transportation (SWACT), an 18-member commission which provides policy advice to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and makes recommendations on funding for a variety of transportation projects in the Curry, Coos and Douglas County area.

SWACT recently approved a four-year transportation system improvement plan for the three-county area that includes some $12 million in funding for improvements including reconstruction of Railroad Street in Brookings, the purchase of vehicles for Curry County Transit, a truck climbing lane on Highway 5 at Roberts Mountain in Douglas County, a transit station in Coos Bay and four other projects. This summer, SWACT will begin developing a transportation system improvement plan for the 2017-20 period.

Milliman has served in various transportation policy positions for much of his career.
