About Public Works Projects
Public Works projects preserve or enhance existing City infrastructure - streets, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, wastewater sewers, stormwater facilities, and parks - and provide new and expanded facilities to serve community needs and growth. Projects can include land acquisition, construction, and major preservation of public facilities.
Multimodal transportation projects complete our transportation system, ensuring Eugene’s streets and paths are connected and accessible for community members of all ages and abilities. These projects focus on making streets safe and reliable for people walking, biking, rolling, busing, and driving. Pavement preservation projects repave and preserve local streets. Additional projects elements may include upgrading sidewalk access ramps, adding sidewalks or bike lanes, installing stormwater planters, and more. Eugene's pavement preservation program is funded by local gas taxes and the voter approved 2017 Street Bond Measure.
