[ARCHIVED] City of Eugene launches redesign of Franklin Boulevard

This winter, the City of Eugene is launching the redesign of one of its busiest streets, Franklin Boulevard. Over the next year, City staff will be working with people throughout the community to transform the busy road into a multi-modal urban street that makes it easier for people to safely walk, bike, ride the bus and drive through the corridor.

To help develop Eugene’s vision for an updated Franklin, between Alder Street and I-5, the City will be asking for the community’s input. The first opportunity will be at a multi-day design workshop. There people can identify and learn about the vision, goals, and objectives for the corridor by creating, reviewing, and refining multi-modal design ideas for the street.

The City of Eugene recently completed the acquisition of Franklin Boulevard from the Oregon Department of Transportation. The City now owns Franklin Boulevard west of I-5. In its present state, Franklin Boulevard represents an outdated state highway that does not serve the multi-modal needs of the urban Eugene community.

The planning project will begin in January and is anticipated to last approximately one year, concluding in late 2019.
