MovingAhead Seeks Public Input

The City of Eugene, with Lane Transit District, is asking for the public’s input on MovingAhead, an in-depth review of opportunities to improve transportation safety and access along five key corridors: 

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


Public feedback is critical to provide better transportation connectivity across the city, including for people who walk, ride a bike, use a mobility device or take the bus.


The public comment period begins Monday, March 11, 2019, and will remain open until 5 p.m. on April 10, 2019. All of the feedback will be used to form the MovingAhead final recommendations, which are expected to be completed later in fall 2019.


Input Opportunities


Online

Beginning, Monday, March 11, 2019, community members can learn more about MovingAhead, and provide their feedback and ideas, through the MovingAhead online open house. Working with the community, Eugene and LTD have developed investment option packages for all of the corridors. The package options were built around community preferences and last year’s technical analysis.


March 12-15 Corridor Outreach Events

Community members can also provide feedback by attending one of the corridor outreach events March 12-15. MovingAhead experts will be aboard the LTD Outreach Bus to talk about the project and the proposed changes on the following dates and at the following locations:

  • Tuesday, March 12, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.,  Lane Community College Bus Station, 4000 E. 30th Ave.
  • Wednesday, March 13, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Safeway, 1500 Coburg Rd.
  • Thursday, March, 14, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Bethel Branch Library, 1990 Echo Hollow Rd.
  • Friday, March 15, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., River Road Transit Station, River Road and River Ave.


March 18 Open House

The MovingAhead team welcomes everyone to the community-wide open house on Monday March 18, 2019 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the UO Baker Center, 975 High Street. City of Eugene and Lane Transit District Staff will share information with community members and have opportunities to provide feedback.

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.
