Design Enhancement Panel (DEP)
The Design Enhancement Panel was comprised of eight community members. The members have contributed thousands of hours of volunteer time on the design enhancements for the Willamette River Bridge and surrounding area between June 2009 and February 2010. Specifically, they:
  • Reviewed and commented on the results and outcomes of the work of the Art and Design Teams.
  • Interpreted and implemented the “Whilamut Passage” theme.
  • Helped convey stakeholder and community design input and requirements.
  • Ensured that elements of the project area are recognized as interconnected pieces of the whole.

Design Enhancement Milestones
Art and design teams are now refining the design enhancements based on stakeholder and public comment. The teams are also developing cost estimates, specifications and preparing construction plans.
ODOT is moving forward with the ADT hired for the Whilamut Natural Area (north bank) and the design teams selected for the above-deck enhancements based on a recommendation from the Project Development Team.

South bank enhancements will be finalized after additional stakeholder input on the required interpretive displays for the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and the historic Eugene Millrace, and how selected enhancements compliment those displays.
