EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene voters can expect to see a familiar measure on this year's ballot come election day. Bond measure 20-275 was put on the ballot this summer by the Eugene City Council.

The measure will continue the repairing of Eugene's roads. This is an extension of a similar measure that took effect in 2008, and again in 2012. 

It's a $51 million bond measure, that will fuel the repairing of 78 streets in Eugene, a total of 91 projects. 

"The city goes through and we evaluate all the streets throughout the city, we look at all of them every three years, and so streets are in a constant state of deterioration," said Brian Richardson, public affairs manager of Eugene Public Works. 

If approved, Bond Measure 20-275 won't go into effect until 2019, as the current bond measure will uphold until then.

These bonds will be repaid through property taxes, which are expected to cost the average household an estimated $148 per year.

This measure will be on the ballot this upcoming November, so be sure to look out for it when it comes time to vote.
