In response to community concerns about traffic safety and speeding motor vehicles, the City of Eugene will install traffic calming speed cushions on Avalon Street between Legacy Street and just east of Colton Way this summer. Speed cushions are traffic calming devices that are grooved to allow passage of emergency vehicles and buses but slow speeding motor vehicles.
A series of six traffic calming speed cushions will be placed on Avalon Street with this project. The construction timeline is expected to be from late June/July to September 2019. The map below indicates the approximate location of the speed cushions.
