Downtown on 8th Ave


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

Project Update

The project limits on 8th Avenue have been revised as follows.

  • Repaving from Mill Street to Willamette Street
  • 2-way conversion from Mill Street to Lincoln Street.
  • Removal of traffic signals at Willamette Street, Olive Street, and Lincoln Street.
  • 4-way stop at Willamette Street and at Olive Street.
  • 2-way stop for 8th Avenue at Lincoln Street.
  • 2-way conversion from Lincoln Street to Jefferson Street will occur at a future date yet to be determined.

Selected Alternative

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 Alternative

Construction will begin as soon as possible following project design. The anticipated construction window is somewhere between fall 2020 and summer 2021. Prior to construction, all adjacent property owners, businesses, and residents will receive advanced notification for construction, proposed schedule, and traffic control plans.
