Garfield Street, 6th Avenue to Roosevelt Blvd

Construction Update - Week of Jul 13, 2018

Garfield Street (W. 6th Ave. to Roosevelt Blvd.):  Garfield Street will be closed Monday through Friday at W. 2nd Avenue to the north (towards Roosevelt Blvd.).  Local traffic will be maintained but through traffic should take an alternate route.  Garfield Street will also be closed Wednesday and Thursday to through traffic from W. 6th Avenue north toward W. 2nd Avenue for railroad crossing upgrade work.  Vehicles will NOT be able to get by the railroad tracks closest to W. 6th Street. 

Completed: No
Jurisdiction: City of Eugene Mode: Road
Bike
Pedestrian
Description:

• This project includes the removal of the existing paved surface, and replacement.
• During this project, the railroad companies will upgrade the track crossings to concrete.
• Access ramps were already constructed in 2017.
• When complete, this project will add dedicated bike lanes from 2nd Avenue to Roosevelt Blvd.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
Traffic Impacts:

• Due to the railroad upgrading the rail crossings, Garfield will be completely closed to through traffic. Each closure, by section, is expected to last 5 days. There are 4 sections.
• Local traffic will be allowed, but drivers will need to follow detour routes.
• Bicyclists should expect to follow detour routes, or use the sidewalk when available.
• 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 2018.
• 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 entirely funded by the 2012 Pavement Bond measure.
