Input Wanted for Improving Eugene's 5 Busiest Roads

Sep 21, 2018

The City of Eugene and Lane Transit District are asking for feedback on how to improve safety and connectivity on five of the most traveled roads in the area.

The Moving Ahead project is focused on the busiest corridors in the city – River Road, Highway 99, Coburg Road, MLK Jr Boulevard and 30th Avenue to Lane Community College. Chris Henry is the co-project manager.

“In some cases the street is a barrier itself, so we’ve identified locations to add pedestrian crossings. It’ll have some signalized treatment that will make it easier for people to cross the street more safely.”

Henry says the City of Eugene and LTD Board will finalize the plan in 2019. Although they haven’t identified a funding source, he says they will look into federal transportation money with local matching funds.
