Corvallis-Albany Bikeway Project Public Survey
Between November 19 and 23, 2015, Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall, Inc. (DHM Research) conducted a telephone survey of residents in Albany and Corvallis, Oregon on the behalf of Benton County. The objective of the survey was to gauge opinions about bicycle and pedestrian facilities. More specifically, the survey sought to gauge attitudes about, and potential use of, a proposed bike path between Albany and Corvallis along Highway 20.
Between November 23rd and December 7th of 2015, DHM Research facilitated an online community engagement survey for residents of Benton and Linn counties in the state of Oregon. The online survey closely mirrored the phone survey in content. The online survey allowed greater community engagement by providing interested residents the opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions.

In January of 2016, DHM Research presented their findings of the telephone and online surveys to the Board of Commissioners. The presentation is available online. That presentation summarized the survey findings regarding
- Interest in the bicycle-pedestrian path
- Support for building the path
- Potential use of the path
- What can be inferred about pathway use and need
