Upcoming Projects

13th Avenue Bikeway

The 13th Avenue Bikeway will feature a two-way protected bike lane on 13th Avenue from Alder Street to Lincoln Street linking the University of Oregon campus to downtown Eugene.  Protected bike lanes provide physical separation between the bikeway and travel lanes.  To facilitate two-way traffic, signalized intersections will have bike-only signal phases to prevent turning conflicts between automobile drivers and people riding bicycles. Learn more here.


South Willamette Street Improvement Plan

In February 2018, City staff informed the Eugene City Council that the current pilot design for South Willamette Street would be made permanent with an upcoming pavement preservation project. The project, which will begin in the Spring of 2020, will replace sidewalks, driveways, and access ramps; and add pedestrian-scale street lighting and rain gardens on side streets to treat stormwater. This past year utility companies have been carrying out work along the corridor to upgrade utilities and services so that once the street is paved they won’t have to cut into it for that work.  Learn more here.
