Residents in our region value safe, accessible transportation for everyone, whether by foot, bike, mobility device, bus, or car. Such a system supports great neighborhoods and helps keep us and our economy healthy.
The City of Eugene and Lane Transit District (LTD) are working with regional partners and the community to add new features to some of our most important streets. (We call these places corridors because several streets may work together as a system to serve transportation needs for people using transit, biking and walking.)
This project, called MovingAhead, is focused on better connecting people to jobs, schools, shopping, recreation, and other activities by considering a range of transportation investments along key corridors to improve safety and livability for everyone. Find out more on the Project Overview page.
During the early stages of this project, the community helped identify five key corridors to be studied in more depth, and weighed in on transportation solutions for each. More recently, we worked to develop an Alternatives Analysis, released in September 2018, which identifies the costs and benefits of transportation investments for each of the corridors.
Over the summer and fall of 2018, we hosted engagement opportunities to share the findings from the Alternatives Analysis with the public. We also gathered valuable input from the community about what types of investments they would prefer along each corridor and the most important reasons for determining each option. Hundreds of community members participated and shared their thoughts. The feedback from those activities is detailed in the 2018 Outreach Summary.
Based on community preferences and the technical analysis, we bundled proposed investment options into packages for all the corridors. We’re ready to share these at a community-wide open house on March 18. Your input on these packages will help us develop a preferred package of investments for the Eugene City Council and the LTD Board of Directors to approve.
On behalf of the entire project team, thank you for your continued participation in this project. Your involvement in MovingAhead is important and will help the City and LTD refine and determine a package of transportation investments to make our main streets safer and more usable for everyone, especially for people walking, biking, using mobility devices, and busing.
Give us your comments, ideas, and feedback on MovingAhead. We want to know how to create a safe and accessible transportation system for everyone!
