South Bank Path Rehabilitation (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
Jurisdiction: City of Eugene Mode: Bike
Description: Sections of the Ruth Bascom South Bank Path from the Greenway Bridge to RiverPlay will be reconstructed this summer, making it safer and more enjoyable for the people who walk, run, cycle and skate on the path.
Timeline: Summer 2011
Traffic Impacts: Portions of the path will be closed for construction and public safety. The work will be done in sections to keep path closures to a minimum. However, path users should anticipate extended closures at various locations throughout the summer. Bike commuters and other path users are encouraged to use the North Bank Path as an alternative route during construction. Path users are asked to respect the closures. Staying out of closed areas protects the safety of the public and allows the contractor to work as quickly as possible.
Work Schedule:

The City plans to perform the work beginning the week of August 1.


Eugene voters approved a five-year general obligation (property tax) bond measure to fix city streets and, off-street bike and pedestrian paths in November 2008. The bond measure is designed to fix approximately 70 lane miles of streets and three miles of paths. Using a pavement evaluation system and path usage data, Public Works Engineering staff developed a list of needed path repairs around the city. Staff then presented the evaluation results to the Eugene Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC). Members of Eugene’s BPAC supported the staff evaluation and help to prioritize the path project list.
