Franklin Boulevard Transformation
Franklin Boulevard, with its wide lanes and fast-moving vehicles, can be an uninviting, unsafe and uncomfortable street. The City is working on plans to transform Franklin Boulevard into a street that serves all travelers including people who walk, bike, ride the bus and drive. The project will help meet Eugene’s climate recovery goals and encourage ways for businesses and neighborhoods near Franklin Boulevard to redevelop the boulevard into a more comfortable connector of places, rather than a divider. HDR is lead consultant, and Cogito supporting the public involvement. The City of Eugene is collaborating closely with the local partners including the University of Oregon, Lane Transit District, the City of Springfield, and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
