Garfield Street, 6th Avenue to Roosevelt Blvd

Construction Update - Week of Aug 2, 2018

Garfield Street (W. 6th Avenue to Roosevelt Blvd.):  Minimal construction is scheduled for the week.  Top lift paving will occur on Monday, August 13.  At that time, drivers should expect SIGNIFICANT delays.  Use alternate routes whenever possible.

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.
