EUGENE, Ore. — Parts of 5th Avenue will be closed this week as repair work continues.
Construction crews will remove the entire roadway and build it from the ground up. The construction will repair the extremely deteriorated parts of the road and sidewalk.
“It will be nice new smooth road surfaces, we’re not changing the alignment of the street it will be put back pretty much like it is, we’re just replacing bad curb and gutter and some bad sidewalk,” said project manager John Bonham.
The road repairs are part of a $3.5 million project, funded primarily by a 2008 voter-approved bond measure.
Eugene public works says the project will be done in several phases, so businesses and homes are not disrupted.
