The LTD Board of Directors on Wednesday, March 16 will vote on the Locally Preferred Alternatives.
The Eugene City Council and LTD Board of Directors held a joint work session on February 28, 2022. Staff shared details about the alternatives and public engagement to date, which has included more than 20 open houses/workshops, emails to more than 1,000 accounts, 60 presentations/community events, 46,000 mailings and canvassed 500 properties along the corridors.
After the Locally Preferred Alternatives are selected, the City of Eugene and LTD will work on refining the designs for the project, which includes more community engagement, so that staff can continue to work towards implementing investments along these important streets.
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. This list of prioritized investments will become a powerful tool for implementing local and regional land use, transportation, and community plans.
