Repost Party: June InMotion, BikeLane Coalition update #20, and ODOT construction newsletter

Ain’t no party like a repost party ’cause a repost party is alotlessworkthanactuallywritinguniquecontent.

Today’s repost party includes the always-wonderful City of Eugene InMotion newsletter, which is chock full of information about local events and construction, including this important tidbit about upcoming 1-5 bridge construction:

SPRINGFIELD— An ODOT construction project will soon impact the bridge over Interstate 5 that connects MLK Jr. Blvd. and Centennial Blvd. in Eugene and Springfield. The project will temporarily affect motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. […]

Work on the MLK Jr. /Centennial Blvd. structure (MP 193.49) in the Eugene-Springfield area will require a partial bicycle/pedestrian path closure from June 2, 2010 through early August 2010. A signed detour will be in place. The detour will leave the path northbound out of Alton Baker Park and lead to Covey Lane, then turn northbound on Lindley Lane to the signal at MLK Jr. Blvd., then travel across to Garden Way where it rejoins the bicycle/pedestrian path.

Motorists will experience lane restrictions on the bridge beginning June 7, when there will be one lane of travel in each direction. In July, there will be ten nights when the bridge will be completely closed. Detour signs and maps will be available prior to the complete closures

Our repost party also includes a BikeLane Coalition update from Jim Wilcox about the Oregon Bike Summit last weekend and musings on how to best advance cycling, and an Oregon Department of Transportation newsletter about construction on Highway 126 and other areas that may affect your ride planning.
