The pavement on Beltline is deteriorating rapidly with extensive raveling, rutting, and intermittent cracking creating a rough ride for the 55,000 - 90,000 vehicles that travel the route each day.
OR 569 is a main route in the Eugene area, carrying commuters and truck traffic through the north end of Eugene. A more expensive method of multiple lifts of asphalt would be needed if paving did not happen in 2018. Several bridges will receive waterproofing membranes and joint replacement.
Because of the need, the project was moved up and the accelerated timeline to get construction done meant that the project has been split into two portions. Maintenance patch paving will be done this summer from Roosevelt Blvd to West 11th. Full preservation paving will be done at a date to be determined.
Roosevelt Blvd to Coburg Road
Cost and Funding
Paving Beltline now will save the roadway from needing more extensive repairs and provide a better, safer trip for travelers.
This is one of several major paving and construction projects in the Eugene area.
Also on Beltline Highway:
The Beltline Highway/Delta Highway Interchange construction project will make the interchange a partial cloverleaf. This will improve safety by eliminating merging and weaving issues on the two intersecting highways. Construction will begin in early 2019.
