Lane Transit District and the City of Eugene kick off MovingAhead with May Workshops

Our community values transportation that is safe and convenient for everyone whether on foot, bike, a bus, or in a car. The City of Eugene and the Lane Transit District – with the support of other regional partners – are launching MovingAhead in an effort to determine how to improve the main streets that connect neighborhoods, shopping areas, and jobs in our region.

MovingAhead will result in prioritized transit, walking, and biking projects that will support great neighborhoods and help keep residents and the region’s economy healthy.

The study focuses on seven main streets that have been identified in City, LTD, and regional plans. Streets under consideration include:

  • Highway 99
  • River Road
  • 30th Avenue to Lane Community College
  • Coburg Road
  • Good Pasture Island Road to Valley River Center
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Centennial Boulevard
  • Randy Pape Beltline Highway


The public is invited to attend one of four MovingAhead workshops to provide input into how these streets should work in the future. Supervised children’s activities and snacks will be provided. Each workshop kicks-off at 5 p.m. and presentation and group activities will begin at 5:30 p.m.
