EUGENE, Ore. -- The Lane Transit District and Eugene city officials want to know how to improve travel options, given the growth being seen in the area.
The MovingAhead Project is asking people to provide feedback on possible changes to transportation in Eugene. MovingAhead began in 2015 as a partnership between the city of Eugene, LTD, regional agencies and the Eugene-Springfield community.
The purpose of this project is to decide what transportation investments are needed to improve travel along five key passageways. These include River Road, Highway 99, Coburg Road, MLK Jr. Boulevard and 30th Avenue to Lane Community College.
The city of Eugene and the LTD board of directors will choose a transit package that can be funded and built over the next 10 years.
People can weigh in on the MovingAhead Project online or they can go to one of four open houses over the next month. The first open house is Monday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Eugene Public Library.
