2021 Public Works Projects

Transportation Projects

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. 

Multimodal projects complete our transportation system, ensuring Eugene’s streets and paths are connected and accessible for community members of all ages and abilities. The projects focus on making streets safe and reliable for people walking, biking, rolling, busing, and driving. Click on a project below for construction details, timeline and contact.
