[ARCHIVED] The MovingAhead Project is Moving Ahead with Public Input

With a focus on safety and a better connected city, people in Eugene have a unique opportunity to shape the future along some of the city’s most traveled roads. Over the next few weeks, people will have several chances to learn about the MovingAhead project. The feedback they provide will help shape the final decision – and may improve travel in Eugene.

5 Key Corridors

MovingAhead is an in-depth look at how to improve transportation along five key corridors: 

  1. River Road
  2. Highway 99
  3. Coburg Road
  4. MLK, Jr. Boulevard
  5. 30th Avenue to Lane Community College

The project is intended to provide better connectivity across the city, including for people who walk, ride a bike, use a mobility device or take the bus. 

Tell Us What You Think

Visit the MovingAhead website to: 

  • Learn more about MovingAhead
  • Provide feedback on a variety of proposed improvements
  • View project materials including a detailed look at the options under consideration
  • Watch a project video

The public comment period runs through October 10 at 5 p.m.. A second public comment period will take place later in the fall. All of the feedback will be used to form the MovingAhead final recommendations, which are expected to happen in spring 2019.

Past Open Houses

The City also hosted four open houses in September. MovingAhead experts talked with attendees about the project and the proposed changes. 

  • September 24: 30th Avenue to Lane Community College Corridor
  • September 25: River Road Corridor
  • September 26: Coburg Road and MLK, Jr. Boulevard Corridors
  • September 27: Highway 99 Corridor

About MovingAhead

MovingAhead began in 2015 as a partnership between the City of Eugene, Lane Transit District (LTD), regional agencies, and the Eugene-Springfield community. The purpose of the project is to determine what transportation investments are needed on some of our most important streets. 

At the conclusion of the project, the Eugene City Council and LTD Board of Directors will select a package of transit, walking, and biking investments across these five corridors that can be funded and built over the next 10 years. This list of prioritized investments will become a powerful tool for implementing local and regional land use, transportation, and community plans.
