Event description
Get involved with helping the City of Eugene to redesign Franklin Boulevard between Alder St and I-5!

About this Event

The City is launching a redesign of Franklin Blvd between Alder St and I-5. Currently, it is auto oriented and lacks high quality walking and biking infrastructure as well as safe intersections for people driving, walking or biking, but the City wants to transform the boulevard into a street that serves the needs of all members of the community! To help update the design, the City is asking the community to help shape Franklin into a modern multi-modal urban street.

This meeting is the third of three events this week that coincides with a four-day design workshop in which the City will be generating design concepts for what a transformed Franklin Blvd may look like. The design reveal will showcase the week’s work toward a concept design for transforming Franklin Boulevard. The City will present possible street cross sections, intersection and gateway designs, along with information about how options impact the way people traveling by different modes use the corridor. At this point, designs will have incorporated input from the first two events of the week – Monday’s Kickoff Meeting, and Tuesday’s Open Studio - and stakeholder conversations. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A where the community can further investigate how and why specific design elements have been recommended. Designs presented at this event are not final versions and will be further evaluated in the coming months.

If you’re planning on attending this event, the City recommends that you also attend or watch the kickoff meeting on Monday, if possible.
