The Metropolitan Policy Committee will hold a public hearing on an amendment to the Regional Transportation Plan. The City of Eugene is requesting an amendment to the Central Lane MPO’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) for the 24th Avenue Sidewalk Widening project. The City wishes to amend the RTP to place the project on the Plan’s fiscally constrained project list.
The project will replace the existing 5-foot wide sidewalk on the south side of 24th Avenue (beginning at the Amazon (shared use) Path and terminating 200 feet to the east) with a new 8-foot wide sidewalk that will match the newly rebuilt 8-foot sidewalk in front of the new Roosevelt Middle School building. This project is needed to provide a path-like connection between Roosevelt Middle School and the Amazon path
