The March 2010 City of Eugene InMotion newsletter is a wealth of great information. This month’s newsletter covers the SmartTrips EPA Grant, Project Homeless Connect, Youth Mentoring, the EWEB Riverfront Master Plan, LTD route changes, and community events.
The newsletter also include an important 1-5 bridge construction update: (emphasis mine)
Construction Increases on the New I-5 Willamette River Bridge As construction increases on the new I-5 Willamette River Bridge, people using park paths east of Autzen Stadium will experience delays or detours. Starting Mar. 15, path users in the Whilamut Natural Area and Eastgate Woodlands will experience delays of 20 minutes or longer. Flaggers will be on the paths to direct traffic. Bicyclists are subject to the same rules as other motorists, including doubling of fines in construction zones for not obeying a flagger or riding on a road or path that is closed. In mid April, the Canoe Canal Path as it passes under I-5 will be closed and path traffic will be detoured to the North Bank Path. This detour will only be in place a few weeks and then east-west traffic will return to the Canoe Canal Path. Signage will be in place announcing the changes. Please watch for and obey the flaggers.
