Amazon Active Corridor: Martin St to 33rd Ave.

Construction Update - Week of Nov 1, 2018

Amazon Corridor (Martin St. to E. 33rd Ave.):  Construction continues on East Amazon Drive as crews continue to place permanent striping and start on the concrete separators to separate the two-way cycle track from vehicles.  Watch for signs and cones.  Further south on Hilyard Street, crews continue constructing the 10-foot wide sidewalk on the west side of Hilyard Street, from West 34th Alley to West 36th Avenue.   Drivers should also look for cones and signs in this area marking the lane shift.

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

• Construct a two-way protected cycle track on E. Amazon Dr. from Hilyard St. to Dillard Rd.
• Project will remove the existing pedestrian bridge that crosses the Amazon Channel at E 39th
Ave and replace it with three new pedestrian prefabricated bridges at E 37th Ave, E 39th Ave, and Dillard Rd.
• Project will rehabilitate the Rexius running path on both sides of the Amazon Channel from E 33rd Ave to Martin St.
• Install a diagonal bicycle crossing across Hilyard St at intersection of E 33rd Ave and Hilyard St.
• Modify the west sidewalk on Hilyard St to create a multi-use path from E 34th Aly to E 36th Pl.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
Traffic Impacts:

• Rexius running path will be closed in sections, pedestrians please use adjacent sidewalks.
• Drivers should expect lane closures and lane shifts during construction.
• 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 spring and summer of 2018.
• 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 Multimodal Transportation Enhance Program (MTEP) as administered by the Federal Highway Administration and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
• The City share for this project will be funded by the city’s transportation system changes program and the 2012 Pavement Bond Measure - Pedestrian Enhancement Program.
