This project is part of the Central Eugene in Motion study.

After a community process that included stakeholder meetings, two open houses, surveys, online mapping and a series of focus groups with sub-area stakeholders, the selected alternative for Downtown on 8th Avenue was chosen.

Selected Design: 8th Avenue Streetscape & Protected Bike Lanes Planned for 2022

The project will repave 8th Avenue from Lincoln Street to Mill Street, convert the section to a two-way street, construct protected bike lanes from High Street to Lincoln Street, add 4-way and 2-way stops at key intersections, and widen sidewalks and reconstruct sidewalk access ramps. Motor vehicle parking on the south side of 8th Avenue will be removed and parking on the north side will be relocated away from the curb, to allow for the protected bike lanes. The project aims to create a safe travel option for community members of all ages and abilities to access Downtown Eugene and destinations in between.

The 8th Avenue Streetscape & Protected Bike Lanes project will include the following:

  • Repaving on 8th Avenue (from Lincoln to Mill Street)
  • 2-way conversion on 8th Avenue (from Lincoln to Mill Street)
  • Protected bike lanes on 8th Avenue (from High to Lincoln Street)
  • 4-way stop at 8th Avenue and Willamette Street and at 8th Avenue and Olive Street
  • 2-way stop at 8th Avenue and Lincoln Street
  • New stormwater planters will to clean water runoff from city streets

We have begun the design and engineering process and will plan to construct the 8th Avenue Streetscape project in 2022. Prior to construction, all adjacent property owners, businesses, and residents will receive advanced notification for construction and proposed schedule.
