This Sunday the city of Eugene is going automobile-free on two large portions of southeast Eugene! 

The plan calls for two loops for non-car traffic only so bicyclists or other self-propelled vehicles will have the streets to themselves.. The south loop runs from 27th to 24th between Hilyard to Potter streets, while the northern loop goes from 24th to 19th between University and Agate streets.

Transportation Options Coordinator Lindsay Selser said, “One of the big reasons that we do this is to try and get more people to walk and bike, and so the more people we can get to come out and try it in a really safe environment like Sunday Streets, the easier it is for us to get them out to the new things we’re building."

Beginning at noon, Washburne, University and Amazon parks will be centers for outdoor activities like  hula hoop class, bike registration with the Eugene Police, slacklining, and helmet decorating. Southeast Neighbors will host an information booth at Amazon Park from noon to 4 p.m. as an outreach and educational  event.

One goal of the event is to connect the Fairmount, South University and Amazon neighborhoods. Residents of these neighborhoods are asked to postpone their driving until after 4 p.m. when the event concludes
