EUGENE, Ore. -- East 13th Avenue runs right through the heart of the University of Oregon campus, and university officials are looking into redesigning it to better accommodate students.

"It still has the look and kind of feel of what that original use was," said Aaron Olsen, the Landscape Planning Associate with the university.

He said in the early 1970s, some barriers were installed to stop city traffic from driving through campus, and not much has changed since.

Olsen said they're looking to redesign it from Kincaid Street to Franklin Boulevard.

"This project is really hoping to redefine the character of the street and really change this space into an iconic, open space on our campus," Olsen said.

He said the university is still in the early stages of the project. They're holding an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 7 in the EMU's Lease Crutcher Lewis Room to find out what the community wants included.
