The funding proposal would utilize a portion of these funds.

City of Springfield requests MPC approval of STBG funding for design and NEPA project on McVay Highway corridor, and to amend the 2021-2024 MTIP to include this funded project. The City has embarked on this project that will improve connections, provide bike, pedestrian, and storm water facilities, provide a safer facility for all modes, and help make the Glenwood area a vibrant place to live, work, and visit. A design concept will be developed identifying the right-of-way width, various elements such as bicycle, pedestrian, and storm water needs, intersection layout and right-of-way envelope, and potential re-alignment of an intersecting street. Once the envelope has been established, the environmental (NEPA) analysis would be completed for the corridor.

City of Eugene requests MPC approval of STBG funding for a new seismic bridge retrofit project on Bailey Hill Rd at Amazon Creek, and to amend the 2021-2024 MTIP to include this funded project. MPC had previously approved $674,000 of STBG funding for City of Eugene’s Ferry Street Bridge seismic retrofit project (STIP Key 21377). Results of conceptual design work revealed that the cost of completing this project is significantly beyond the available funding. The City is now proposing that these funds be used instead to complete another seismic retrofit bridge project on Amazon Creek at Bailey Hill Rd for which the conceptual design resulted in a compatible estimate.
Funding requested: $667,000 (includes local match of $68,500.90)
