The City of Eugene and the Lane Transit District (LTD) are working with the community to prioritize corridors for near-term enhancements that serve people using transit, biking, walking, and mobility devices. MovingAhead will build from Envision Eugene and LTD’s Long Range Transit Plan. These documents call for improving service for people using transit, and facilities for people biking and walking in our community.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard Corridor (see map below) extends east to Interstate 5, but does not continue into Springfield. Initially, MovingAhead was considering options that would continue on Centennial Boulevard to serve Springfield. As the City of Springfield does not have the resources available to consider transit enhancements on Centennial Boulevard at this time, MovingAhead will develop options only within the City of Eugene.
LTD, the City of Eugene, and other regional partners are looking at each corridor individually to understand what types of investments are needed for people using transit, biking, walking, and mobility devices to meet their transportation needs and support vibrant places. Community members will be invited to participate throughout the process. Community members’ participation will be critical to developing corridor concepts that accommodate all users and prioritizing projects for near-term investment.
