Santa Clara Transit Station
New Proposed Transit Station
Lane Transit District (LTD) is proposing the development of a transit station, located at the former Santa Clara Elementary School site on River Road between Green Lane and Hunsaker Lane in North Eugene.
LTD purchased the 8-acre, bank-owned property in 2015 with the intention of relocating its current transit station from River Road just south of Beltline. Safety issues, congestion and operational inefficiency have made the current station more difficult to access.
The total budget for the project is expected to be $10,300,000 with funding from a mixture of sources including grants and a local match. Specific funding sources include:
- Federal Transit Administration (FTA/5307) – $3,000,000
- Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) – $600,000
- Connect Oregon Grant – $3,000,000
- LTD Local Match - $3,700,000
LTD visited the Santa Clara Community Organization at its monthly meeting on December 6 to talk with residents about the project and show some of the very early concepts for the new transit station. Click here for a PDF of that presentation.
LTD is offering another opportunity for community members to find out more about the project and to answer any questions members of the community may have.
