Virginia-Daisy Bikeway Project

Daisy Street SignVirginia Avenue Street SignVirginia Avenue and Daisy Street are currently undergoing design development to provide a safe and comfortable bicycle corridor that can be used by people of all ages and abilities. The corridor will provide an east-west bike network option, that will serve as an alternative to Main Street. Additionally, the project strives to enhance the overall appeal of the corridor for all users and residents, improve pedestrian safety and usage, and provide traffic calming to emphasize safety and active transportation along the street.

The City Council held a public hearing on November 21, 2016 and approved the draft final report.

Project Background

The project considered design elements, including treatments such as striping of bicycle lanes, sharrows, traffic calming infrastructure, intersection treatments, automobile traffic diversion, limited lighting additions, ramp improvements, speed and designation signs, and a crossing improvement at S 42nd St.

The City of Springfield was selected to receive funding to develop and implement the Virginia-Daisy Bikeway project through the Oregon Transportation Enhancement grant program. The project was identified in the Springfield Bicycle Plan and is consistent with the Springfield Transportation System Plan, the Central Lane MPO Regional Transportation Plan, and the Lane County Transportation System Plan. The project will pair well with the Willamalane Mill Race Multiuse Path to provide more city-wide east-west connectivity. The path has a trailhead at 32nd and Jasper that opened winter 2017.
