Utility relocation is under way on Charnelton Street and on West 6th and 7th Avenues.
Road and sidewalk construction is expected to begin in spring 2015 on Charnelton Street between West 6th and West 11th Avenues during daytime hours, 7 a.m.-7 p.m., and on West 7th Avenue between Garfield and Chambers Streets during nighttime hours, 7 p.m.-7a.m. After Charnelton construction is complete, crews plan to complete road and sidewalk construction during nighttime hours, 7:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m., on West 6th Avenue, followed by Garfield Street, and West 11th Avenue. This schedule is subject to change and LTD will provide as much notice as possible.

New Street Trees!
On Saturday, December 6, 2014, more than 45 community volunteers planted 55 new street trees in Eugene through a partnership between LTD and Friends of Trees. The partnership is part of the West Eugene EmX project landscape improvements that will increase the number of trees adjacent to the West Eugene EmX corridor, and provide the new trees with more room to grow in better soil conditions. Several species of large canopy trees were planted by the enthusiastic volunteers comprised of LTD board members and employees, UO and high school students, City of Eugene employees, West Eugene EmX project staff, and other Friends of Trees supporters.
The new trees were planted adjacent to West 6th and 7th Avenues between Chambers and Lincoln Streets. During the event, several adjacent property owners thanked the volunteers for the new street trees. LTD compliments Friends of Trees for a very well-organized event, and thanks all the volunteers who gave their time and energy to our community.

Photo, Video, and Traffic Simulations
Photo simulations show "before" and "after" images of several sites along the West Eugene EmX route.
Video simulations show images of EmX traveling in portions of the route (no sound).
Visual simulations (no sound) demonstrate how traffic and EmX will flow along the route after the project is completed. These simulations use state-of-the-art modeling and are based on actual traffic and pedestrian counts measured during afternoon peak flow.
