The Oregon Transportation Commission has set aside a pot of money for projects that fall outside of traditional roads and bridges. Lane Transit District has been awarded $2.8 million to build three new bike/pedestrian bridges in West Eugene.

Anyone who's ever tried to walk or bike across West 11th Avenue knows it can be sketchy.

Vobora: "You see people run across the street in the middle of the street and it's really unsafe."

Andy Vobora is with LTD. He says many people don't realize how many residents live just south of the traffic laden street.
