Map of Midtown Willamette Street

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

Selected Design Alternative: Two-Way Conversion & Repaving of Willamette, 20th and Oak Planned for 2021

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 Midtown Willamette Street was chosen.

Willamette Street, from 18th Avenue to 20th Avenue, will have a new look as it is converted from a one-way section to a two-way section. The project will also two-way 20th Avenue from Willamette to Oak Street, and Oak Street from 20th to 19th Avenue. Additionally, the signal at 18th Avenue and Willamette Street will be replaced, streets that show signs of deterioration will be repaved, and sidewalk access ramps will be reconstructed throughout the project in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The updates will allow all street users to continue in both directions, with two-way motor vehicle travel and bike lanes on both sides of the street.

The Willamette Street Two-Way Conversion & Repaving will include the following:

  • Convert Willamette Street from 18th to 20th from one-way to two-way
  • Convert 20th Avenue from Willamette to Oak from one-way to two-way
  • Convert Oak Street from 20th to 19th from one-way to two-way
  • Replace the signal at 18th and Willamette
  • Repave streets that show signs of deterioration
  • Reconstruct sidewalk access ramps throughout project

We have begun the design and engineering process and plan to begin construction in April of 2021 and continue through midsummer. Prior to construction, all adjacent property owners, businesses, and residents will receive advanced notification for construction and proposed schedule.
