Intersection Improvement Pilot Study

Example of Tactical Urbanism from Alegre, Brazil showing Before and After Pictures.

What's Going On?



The City of Eugene is partnering with a number of organizations to pilot a new approach to improving traffic safety called tactical urbanism. It is a method of enhancing the urban environment through quick, low-budget, often temporary projects that make streets safer, more lively, and enjoyable. It has been used by cities across the world in various forms, from pop-up parks and retail shops, to temporary protected bike lanes, to yoga in the streets!

This particular project will focus on improving the intersection of N. Adams and Clark Streets. Using paint and plastic to create a temporary traffic circle, the project will allow the city to improve traffic safety while also studying the resulting impacts to traffic and the local community.

The survey will be used to help city staff and their partners evaluate the success of the pilot project. If it is determined to be successful, other organizations in the region may employ similar techniques to deliver similar projects, all with the goal of improving safety.

Our partners include the Lane Council of Governments, City of Springfield, and the University of Oregon.

  • The City of Eugene will be building a temporary traffic circle as a pilot project at the intersection of N. Adams St and Clark St. This is to test potential traffic safety improvements at the intersection, and to test the public process of implementing this design. The survey will be used to help city staff and their partners evaluate the success of the pilot project. If it is determined to be successful, other organizations in the region may employ similar techniques to deliver similar projects, all with the goal of improving safety.
