Update July 18, 2019: Take the survey to provide feedback on the Central Eugene in Motion process.
As our greater downtown develops, it is important for Eugene's transportation network to have safe and comfortable connections regardless if travel is by car, on foot, bike, bus, or personal mobility device. The Central Eugene In Motion process will explore planned and potential traffic changes with a focus on three key areas. City staff and the community will work together to identify existing transportation issues, explore ideas, and identify preferred design concepts for projects listed in the 2017 Eugene Transportation System Plan (TSP).
Possible changes to streets may include removing on-street parking, adding bike lanes, changing traffic controls, or reducing the number of travel lanes.
The three Central Eugene In Motion focus areas are:
The Midtown Willamette Street focus area is bounded by Willamette Street, 18th and 20th Avenues, and Amazon Parkway and High Street, most of which lies within FAN's boundaries. See the map for details.
In this area existing traffic patterns pose significant hazards for all road users. Between 2007-2016, there have been two fatalities and six serious injuries. Drivers colliding with people on foot caused both fatalities. Drivers colliding with people on bike caused four of the serious injuries, and two were from drivers colliding with one another. See the map for red and orange markers, some of which are stacked on top of each other. For an interactive map, visit bit.ly/fancrash.
With the expected increase in trips to the new Civic Park upon its completion, now is the time to start planning to make significant safety improvements. The City of Eugene will hold an event to launch the Central Eugene in Motion process.
