With a focus on safety and a better connected city, people in Eugene have a unique opportunity to shape the future along some of the city’s most traveled roads. Over the next few weeks, people will have several chances to learn about the MovingAhead project. The feedback they provide will help shape 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 project is intended to provide better connectivity across the city, including for people who walk, ride a bike, use a mobility device or take the bus.

The first opportunity to weigh in starts today, through the MovingAhead online open house. People can go to http://www.movingahead.org.There the community can learn more about MovingAhead and provide feedback on a variety of proposed improvements.

People can also go to one of four open houses over the next month. MovingAhead experts will be available to talk about the project and the proposed changes.
