The Cities of Eugene and Springfield along with Lane Transit District (LTD) have received federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant for the Franklin Boulevard Partnership Project.

With these funds, Springfield is moving forward with designing a roundabout at Mississippi Avenue and Franklin Boulevard. This new roundabout will further overall plans for the New Franklin Boulevard. Long-term goals aim to connect nearby neighborhoods, deliver significant environmental benefits, and improve safety for travelers by adding continuous sidewalks, and safer more convenient connections to the regional bicycle network.
