Willamette Street Reopens

EUGENE, Ore. — A major thoroughfare connecting downtown to south Eugene will finally open back up.

A five-block section of Willamette Street that’s been under construction since early August opened for good on Friday.

The affected stretch is from 18th to 23rd avenues. The repaired street includes new bike lanes, rebuilt crosswalks and a new traffic diverter.

A combination of taxes and bond measures helped to fund the more than $900,000 project.
