Amazon Parkway will be closed to all traffic starting Monday, January 21. The closure will impact both southbound and northbound lanes, between 19th and 24th avenues, and could last until February 7. Drivers should expect delays as they travel around the work zone and plan accordingly.
The closure will allow for the removal and installation of needed infrastructure at the old Civic Stadium site. Crews will need to remove the road, move sewer lines, and remove the pedestrian crossing over Amazon Parkway.
Detours will be in place for drivers and are as follows:
- Northbound traffic – Turn west onto East 24th Avenue and north onto Willamette Street.
- Southbound traffic – Turn east onto East 18th Avenue and south onto Patterson Street. 19th Avenue will remain open throughout the project.
- People walking and biking - Amazon Path will not be impacted by the road closure and will remain open.
The closure will be in place 24-hours a day as crews work to safely remove the bridge and install the new sewer lines. The road will be open as soon as the work is completed.
As part of the permit to build the new Civic Park, Eugene Civic Alliance will build a new, street-level crossing before it officially opens its buildings to the public. This crossing will be more accessible for all – and bring safety features like flashing lights that are seen at other crosswalks throughout the City.
