Jefferson Street: 8th to 18th Pavement Rehabilitation Project

Construction Update - Week of Aug 11, 2017

Jefferson Street-Phase 2 (11th Ave. to 13th Ave.):  Jefferson Street is closed from W. 11th to W. 13th Avenues.  The contractor has reconstructed Lane 1, and will be removing Lane 2.  This phase is expected to be complete August 25th.  Lawrence Street is the designated detour.

Completed: No
Jurisdiction: City of Eugene Mode: Road

• The City plans to rehabilitate and repave Jefferson Street in 2017 between 8th and 18th avenues.
• The concrete street has significantly deteriorated and the majority of the roadway requires reconstruction. The plan is to reconstruct the center 24 feet (travel lanes only) with 10 inch thick high-performance-concrete leaving the parking lanes and curbs intact where possible. Several intersections were reconstructed a few years ago and those will be skipped.
• Sidewalk access ramps throughout the project will be reconstructed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Some deteriorated storm and waste water pipes, manholes and inlets will be replaced.
• Additionally, there are opportunities at 12th and 15th avenues to improve pedestrian crossing convenience/safety. Crews will build curb extensions at 12th Ave, which narrows the road crossing distance for pedestrians. They will construct a modified table intersection at 15th Ave, that slows traffic on Jefferson.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
Work Schedule:

• This project is scheduled to run from May to October of 2017.
• The project is broken into four phases and work will be completed in phases.
• Prior to construction, utility companies (water, electricity, gas) will be on-site to adjust their facilities in order to avoid conflicts with the work and prevent damage to their facilities.
• Prior to the start of construction, the City’s arborists may be on-site trimming trees to prevent overhead limbs from being damaged by construction equipment.


• The major source of funding is the Pavement Bond Measure passed by voters in 2012.
