West 11th

Nix the EmX?

EUGENE– A panel of Lane County officials voted Monday for more study of the proposed EmX West 11th routes, that further review includes a decision on whether to go ahead with the project at all.

Lane Transit District and planners have come under extreme pressure from organized community members who oppose the project due to its expansion of the already tight-quarters on West 11th street. Many of the proposed changes would widen the street, cutting into storefronts and parking lots that are already cramped.

The Joint Locally Preferred Alternative Committee is a committee made up of members of the City Council, Metro Leaders, and LTD officials.
