Delays on the Canoe Canal Path; new phase of Middle Fork Path under way

Two bits of Springfield-y news:

  • If you missed it, today’s Register-Guard reports that construction is starting on the next phase of the Middle Fork Path. This will connect the very nice new first phase of the “path to nowhere” to somewhere — namely Dorris Ranch Park. Construction is supposed to be finished sometime next fall.
  • Commuters who use the Canoe Canal path between Eugene and Springfield will be subject to delays of up to 20 minutes between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. next Tuesday through Thursday (Feb. 21-23). So says ODOT. This has to do with construction of the new I-5 bridge over the Willamette River. Those of you who ride this stretch tell me the regular North Bank Trail under the freeway is still closed, too, leaving the Canoe Canal Path as the only east-west route open under the freeway. So if that’s your route to work, you might want to leave early. ODOT says: Please obey signs and flaggers in the work zone. Of course, you will.

    One more, they’re looking for people to be on the transportation plan stakeholder committee.

      Thanks, Kevin. And, sure, it may not sound like a rip-roaring good time, but remember that it’s important work!
