In response to neighborhood concerns about speeding traffic, the City of Eugene will construct traffic calming on Welcome Way in mid to late 2022.
- The project will focus on Welcome Way from Royal Avenue to Candlelight Drive, but may be extended to cover a portion of Candlelight Drive by Danebo Elementary School.
- Improvements made to the area could include speed humps or speed cushions to slow fast moving traffic.
Reducing vehicle speeds will improve the comfort and safety of people walking, biking, and driving on Welcome Way. This is particularly important given the area's close proximity to Danebo Elementary School and Candlelight City Park.
