Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
Jurisdiction: City of Eugene Mode: Road
Bike
Description:

• This project will construct bicycle and pedestrian improvements at eight locations across the City.
• This project will construct a pedestrian refuge island with a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) on Irvington Drive at Revell Street near Spring Creek Elementary School.
• This project will construct a pedestrian refuge island and improved sidewalk access ramps on Royal Avenue near Throne Drive.
• This project will install enhanced school zone speed limit signage near the Village School on Willamette Street.
• This project will complete striping changes on 24th Ave between Amazon Parkway and Hilyard Street including a buffered bike lane and marked cross walks.
• This project will install signage on the West Bank Path to provide improved information about street and path connections.
• This project will implement neighborhood traffic calming on Polk Street, Chambers Street, and Crest Drive.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
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:

• This project is scheduled for construction in the summer of 2017.
• 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:

• This project is primarily funded by the street repair bond measure passed by voters in 2012 as part of the City’s Pavement Preservation Program.
