EUGENE, OR. – The first of four open houses intended to help shape the MovingAhead project is scheduled for Monday, September 24. Project managers will be on hand to share information about the project. Feedback collected will be used to help inform the final decision – and may improve travel in Eugene.

MovingAhead is an in-depth look at how to improve transportation along five key corridors: River Road, Highway 99, Coburg Road, MLK, Jr. Boulevard, and 30th Avenue to Lane Community College. The conversation is intended to better connect the community for all, including people walking, biking, using mobility devices and riding the bus.

Monday’s open house is the first of four consecutive open houses – one focused on each corridor with the MLK, Jr. Blvd corridor being added to the Coburg Road event.

About MovingAhead: MovingAhead began in 2015 as a partnership between the City of Eugene, Lane Transit District (LTD), regional agencies, and the Eugene-Springfield community. The purpose of the project is to determine what transportation investments are needed on some of our most important streets.

At the conclusion of the project, the Eugene City Council and LTD Board of Directors will select a package of transit, walking, and biking investments across these five corridors that can be funded and built over the next 10 years. This list of prioritized investments will become a powerful tool for implementing local and regional land use, transportation, and community plans.
