Dozens of people signed up to speak at Monday’s Eugene City Council meeting.
The city’s mulling over three options for Willamette St. between 24th and 32nd Avenues. A majority of the people at the meeting opted for the third choice.
That option includes one lane of travel in each direction, a center turn lane and bike lanes.
Councilors could opt for a test run which will give the city a better idea of how to rework the street.
“All we’re doing is restriping the street,” said Eugene city councilor Alan Zelenka. “It doesn’t take very long. The test will actually bare witness to whether who’s camp is basically right.”
Councilors say this test would give them a good barometer of what works, without having to improve the sidewalks.
