18th Avenue from Bertelsen Road to west of Josh Street (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
MTIP: 235 Construction Year: 2015
Jurisdiction: City of Eugene Mode: Road
Description:

This section of 18th Avenue is the west end of the street in the Churchill neighborhood. This street has severe pavement deterioration due to age and heavy traffic loading and needs to be repaved. Work will also include reconstructing sidewalk access ramps throughout the project in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This project is primarily intended to repair the street pavement, but the full scope of the work is not yet determined and additional elements may be added as the site is further reviewed.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
Timeline:

This project is scheduled for construction in the summer of 2015.

Traffic Impacts:

Drivers should expect lane closures and lane shifts during construction. Pedestrians should expect sidewalk detours during the sidewalk ramp work at the intersections. Bicyclists should expect to merge with motor vehicle traffic depending on available lane widths during construction. With any construction, drivers should expect equipment and workers in the roadway leading to congestion and delays during the work.

Work Schedule:

Prior to the start of street construction, the City’s arborists may be on site trimming trees to prevent overhead limbs from being damaged by construction equipment. Also prior to construction, utility companies (water, electricity, gas) may be on site adjusting their facilities in order to avoid conflicts with the work and prevent damage to their facilities.

Funding:

The major source of funding is the Surface Transportation Program – Urban as administered by the Federal Highway Administration and the Oregon Department of Transportation. The City share for the pavement repairs is from the local gas tax, which funds the City’s Pavement Preservation Program.
