SRTS 2020 Enhancement Projects
As part of a 2018 Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Grant Program through ODOT the City of Eugene worked with our SRTS partners at 4j and Bethel School District and applied for funds for improvements near 6 schools. The funds were approved in 2019 and work has begun on designs for the project. Construction is expected to occur in 2020.
A list of the projects, a map, and informational photos can be seen below.
For more information or questions regarding the projects contact Reed Dunbar, Transportation Planner, RDunbar@eugene-or.gov or 541.682.5727.
Marshall Avenue Traffic Calming Community Meeting
As part of a Safe Routes to School project, the City of Eugene will next summer install traffic calming speed cushions on Marshall Avenue between Echo Hollow Road and Hughes Street. Safer intersection crossing enhancements at Taney Street are also planned. Safe Routes to School projects make it safer for kids to walk and bike to school.
A series of 11 traffic calming speed cushions will be placed on Marshall Avenue with this project. Speed cushions are traffic calming devices that are grooved to allow passage of emergency vehicles but slow down people who are speeding.
Join us for a community meeting to learn about the traffic calming proposal on Marshall Avenue.
Wednesday, November 6, 7 p.m.
Malabon Elementary School, 1380 Taney Street, Eugene OR
