[ARCHIVED] MovingAhead Public Hearing Scheduled for Oct. 21

A project to improve transportation options and increase safety along five key corridors has reached a critical stage. The City of Eugene and Lane Transit District (LTD) will hold a public hearing for the MovingAhead project on Monday, October 21. The community can weigh in on the updated investment packages for the five corridors: 

  • Highway 99
  • Coburg Road
  • River Road
  • 30th Avenue
  • MLK Jr. Boulevard

“Public input is a main component of this project,” said Chris Henry, MovingAhead project manager. “Now that we’ve narrowed the list of potential investments, we need the community to tell us what they agree or disagree with.”


The team in charge of the project will host an open house before the public hearing to help answer any questions.

 

MovingAhead Open House

  • Date: Monday, October 21
  • Time: 5-7 p.m.
  • Location: Lane County Public Services Building, Harris Hall, 125 E. 8th Avenue, Eugene

Additional Ways to Comment

Written comments will not be read aloud at the public hearing but will go to decision makers before they make their decision on the preferred investment package.


Public input will be given to the Eugene City Council and LTD Board of Directors. They will then select the preferred package of investments. That decision is expected in early 2020. Once approved, the preferred package will inform which projects are prioritized for construction over the next 10 years. The City and LTD will develop a plan for funding and timing investments, with the goal of using local dollars to leverage state and federal funding.


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.
