On Wednesday, February 16, at 4:00 p.m. and again at 5:00 p.m., join Lane County staff and the project team for an online open house to learn about the East 30th Avenue Active Transportation Plan and provide feedback.

The 30th Avenue corridor currently supports greater speeds and volumes of vehicle traffic, but lacks infrastructure for people to walk and bike safely and comfortably. The planning process will explore issues and opportunities through technical analysis and public involvement, including property owners, Lane Community College, Lane Transit District, Oregon Department of Transportation and the cities of Eugene and Springfield.

The plan will result in recommendations for improving walking, biking, safety and comfort on the corridor which will enable securing future construction funding. The planning effort will continue through 2021. See below for meeting information.
