Road Crews Repair 18th and Polk

EUGENE, Ore. — Drivers may want to avoid the area of 18th Avenue and Polk Street if at all possible. The City of Eugene started construction on the roads Monday.

Eugene Project Manager Brian Davies says people traveling east and west should use different routes to get around the construction. He realizes the closure is an inconvenience, but the work is needed.

“The road was just deteriorated, and the decision was made that this was one of the streets that was selected for improvement,” Davies said.

Davies says residents can expect the roads to re-open on August 1.
