24th Avenue Traffic Calming

Polk Street and 24th Avenue Traffic Calming Community Meeting

Please join us at a community meeting to review a proposal for traffic calming on Polk Street (between 24th Avenue and 28th Avenue) and 24th Avenue (between Chambers Street and Friendly Street) to address speeding traffic. At the meeting we will review the proposal and receive public comments.

On 24th Avenue, recent modifications to the street to allow space for bicycle lanes has increased concerns about speeding traffic. In response, Speed Cushions are proposed along the street at nine locations spaced approximately 300 feet apart. Speed Cushions are similar to Speed Humps and are 3-inches high, 14-feet long for the width of the street, and also have cut-outs for the wheel-path of emergency vehicles.

Date:         Wednesday, October 19
Time:         7:00 p.m.
Location:   Adams Elementary School Cafeteria (950 W. 22nd Avenue, Eugene, OR)
