SRTS 2020 Enhancement Projects

SRTS Projects

Project Description

As part of a 2018 Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Grant Program through Oregon Department of Transportation, the City of Eugene worked with Safe Routes to School (SRTS) partners at 4j and Bethel School Districts and applied for funds for improvements near six local schools. The funds were approved in 2019 with construction scheduled to begin in 2020. 


The SRTS enhancement projects will improve transportation safety near area schools. The improvements to crossings at 15th and Chambers and at 14th and Garfield (ATA and Chavez), Willamette at 34th (Village School), and to the school zone signs on Harlow Road to "when flashing" (Holt), will make it easier and safer for students to walk and roll to school. Families and staff worked with City staff and 4J Safe Routes to School staff to identify the needs and the improvements will be constructed in July 2020.


A full list of the SRTS projects and photos can be seen below.
