McVay EmX Station Closing for Construction
Media Contact: Therese Lang
Beginning on April 10, 2017, Lane Transit District (LTD) will close the McVay EmX Station due to the construction of Phase 1 of the City of Springfield’s New Franklin Boulevard Project.
McVay Station, which is currently located at Franklin Boulevard and McVay Highway, will be permanently closed beginning on April 10, 2017 and a new station will be constructed and opened in 2018. The project will require some minor commuting adjustments and LTD appreciates the community’s patience during the construction.
Regular inbound riders of the EmX will have to use the Lexington Station, which is about a third of a mile away and for those customers that are located south of Franklin Boulevard, the option is to take the Route 85 bus to the Springfield Station and transfer to the EmX. The distance between McVay Station and Springfield Station is about a half mile.
This is the only service disruption to EmX at this time. EmX will continue to operate between Eugene and Springfield Stations. The construction project, now in Phase 1, is expected to continue into 2018.
