Map of Midtown Willamette Street

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

After a Central Eugene in Motion 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.

Selected Design: Two-Way Conversion & Paving of Willamette, 20th and Oak (completed summer 2021)

Willamette Street, from 18th Avenue to 20th Avenue, has a new look and people driving and biking can now travel both north and south on the formerly one-way section. The project also updated 20th Avenue (from Willamette to Oak Street) and Oak Street (from 20th to 19th Avenue) to two-way. Additionally, the traffic signal at 18th Avenue and Willamette Street was replaced, streets that show signs of deterioration were repaved, and sidewalk access ramps were reconstructed throughout the project in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The updates 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 & Paving included 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 traffic signal at 18th and Willamette
  • Repave streets that show signs of deterioration
  • Reconstruct sidewalk access ramps throughout project

The project was constructed summer 2021. Prior to construction, all adjacent property owners, businesses, and residents received advanced notification for construction and proposed schedule.
