EWEB Repairs South Bank Bike Path

BIKE COUNTEUGENE, Ore. – The Eugene Water and Electric Board will repair a compromised section of the south bank bike path near it’s Willamette River property Wednesday.

A water main break at East Eighth Avenue and Hilyard Street in December damaged the path, forcing a temporary closure. The main break disturbed the rock and soil supporting the asphalt path.

Starting at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Delta Construction Co. will begin removing asphalt and inspecting the sub-grade. All damaged areas will be rebuilt.

Workers will be on site from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the work. Flaggers may have to stop pedestrian and bicycle traffic intermittently.

The repair project is expected to take less than a week.
