EUGENE, Ore. — A new addition is coming to the Goodpasture area this fall.
The City of Eugene says a private developmental group is designing and funding a $3-4 million bridge project across Delta Highway. The design will help the flow of traffic by adding turn lanes to the Goodpasture Island Road bridge, and also make it safer for bikers and pedestrians.
“We’re really excited about it. It’s been a point of concern for us just because the existing signals are old and approaching capacity. So we’re excited about getting real movement out there. We’re also very excited about getting better lighting and actually getting a real sidewalk out there and real bike lanes,” said Scott Gillespie, City of Eugene Civil Engineer.
Work is expected to start in June and be done building by October.
