The River Road Corridor Study includes draft proposals to focus land use changes along and near River Road. How will this impact traffic?

Traffic is a concern that frequently arises in discussions surrounding the Neighborhood Plan and Corridor Study. Improving safety and efficiency for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers and public transit is a priority of the plan and involves many partners at the city, county, and state level. The Draft Neighborhood Plan addresses traffic and transportation by envisioning the development of new bicycle and pedestrian routes and connections, improving Beltline, and increasing transit service to the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhoods. This is consistent with Eugene’s 2035 Transportation System Plan, which has a goal to triple the percentage of trips made on foot, by bike and transit in the next twenty years. The City of Eugene also passed the Climate Recovery Ordinance, which includes community wide goals that aim to reduce emissions by the year 2030 by reducing fossil fuel dependence by 50% compared to 2010 usage.
