Beginning in October, the City of Eugene will construct a series of walking and biking projects along East Amazon Drive and Hilyard Street in south Eugene.
You can see a full project description and map on the project website. Here are the details of projects that will be constructed this year:
- Construction of a two-way protected bike lane on the west side of East Amazon Drive from Dillard Road to Hilyard Street as part of the “Ridgeline to River Corridor” that will connect the Ridgeline trail system to the Ruth Bascom Riverfront Path system. Building the protected bikeway entails removing parking from E. Amazon Drive.
- Construction of a bicycle signal to help bike riders get to and from the southeast to northwest corner of Hilyard and E. Amazon Dr./33rd Ave.
- Extend a buffered bike lane on W. Amazon from Fox Hollow to Snell.
- Extension of the Amazon Path on the west side of Hilyard Street from 34th Alley south to 36th Place.
