Upcoming Projects

13th Avenue Bikeway

The 13th Avenue Bikeway will feature a two-way protected bike lane on 13th Avenue from Alder Street to Lincoln Street linking the University of Oregon campus to downtown Eugene.  Protected bike lanes provide physical separation between the bikeway and travel lanes.  To facilitate two-way traffic, signalized intersections will have bike-only signal phases to prevent turning conflicts between automobile drivers and people riding bicycles. Learn more here.


Alder Street Neighborhood Greenway 
There are two projects scheduled for 2019 that include changes to Alder Street.  One is a paving project on 19th Avenue from Hilyard Street to Agate Street.  The other is on Alder Street from 24th Avenue to 27th Avenue. The repaving of streets provides an opportunity to implement projects from the Transportation System Plan.  In this case, neighborhood greenway elements will be added to Alder Street as part of the 19th Avenue and Alder Street projects.

South Willamette Street Improvement Plan

In February 2018, City staff informed the Eugene City Council that the bike lanes and a three-lane street will be made permanent with a pavement preservation project in 2019. The project will replace sidewalks, driveways, and access ramps; and add pedestrian-scale street lighting and rain gardens on side streets to treat stormwater. Learn more here.
