Water Main Break Restricts Traffic in Downtown Eugene

Aug 16, 2019

A broken water main at the intersection of East Broadway and Hilyard Street in Eugene will severely restrict traffic movements at the intersection.

Morning commuters should avoid the area and seek alternate routes. EWEB crews are in the process of repairing the break, but the work will take several more hours.

Northbound Hilyard is reduced to one lane north of East 11th. Vehicles will be allowed to proceed northbound across the intersection, or eastbound on Broadway only. No westbound traffic movements from northbound Hilyard are permitted.

Southbound Hilyard is closed at East 8th, and only business access is permitted. 

The break to the water main occurred at approximately 2:30 A.M.
