Franklin to close overnight for work on Knight Campus bridge starting July 8

Campus Community,

Overnight closures on Franklin Boulevard between Onyx and Agate streets are slated to begin July 8 while crews complete work on a skybridge, an important element of the new Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact.

Starting July 8 at 9 p.m. each evening and running until Labor Day, traffic will be reduced to one lane. At 10 p.m. all vehicular lanes will be closed in both directions, reopening to two lanes in each direction at 5 a.m. Clearly marked detours will guide traffic along Agate Street, East 18th Avenue, and Patterson and Hilyard streets.

The EmX bus and emergency vehicles are expected pass through the job site without being re-routed day and night. Work on the bridge is slated to be complete by Labor Day.
Closures are needed for crews to safely complete elements of the bridge that span the roadway. Signs will be posted on Interstate 5 to re-direct truck traffic bound for downtown Eugene to help minimize truck traffic in neighborhoods adjacent to campus. Other signs will be posted along Franklin Boulevard to address local traffic.

The bridge, which will connect the Lewis Integrative Science Building with the Knight Campus, is comprised of a structural steel frame that uses two butterfly arches and suspension cables. Crews from multiple labor trades will erect the structure one half at a time, gradually increasing the load of the bridge until it is 100 percent self-supporting.

By gradually increasing the loading, crews will be able to frequently test and retest structural integrity along the way. The construction plan underwent an independent third-party engineering evaluation to ensure maximum safety.

A third-party special inspector will provide an independent inspection of all bolted and welded connections as well. At the end of every night of work, the structure will be secure and safe for vehicles to travel under during the following day.

Once the structure is erected, it will then receive finish paint, architectural sheet metal panels, curtain wall glazing and interior finishes such as doors and flooring. The bridge is scheduled to be structurally complete by Labor Day, but will not open until the Knight Campus does, in the late spring of 2020.

Updates, lane closure schedules and detour routes are available on the Knight Campus website’s construction and traffic section.


The bridge will connect the Lewis Integrative Science Building with the Knight Campus
Width: 14 feet (walking area)/48 feet, 2 inches (arch to arch)
Length: 190 feet
Height: 35 feet (top of walking area)/50 feet, 8 inches (top of arches)
Weight: Approximately 500 tons (bridge itself is 300 tons, concrete footings are more than 200 tons)
Building materials: Structural steel, glass and sheet metal

Facilities Liaisons,

As part of the Hayward Field Renovation, the contractor, Hoffman Construction has encountered a field condition related to grades that will require them to pour more concrete than they expected. This will necessitate closing the Onyx Street & East 15th Ave intersection starting at 6:00 am on May 17, removing the concrete in the morning and pouring the concrete in the afternoon. They would re-open the intersection at 6:00 am on Monday, May 20.  Access to the parking lot will not be affected.

Hayward construction will cause traffic changes on East 15th


AtO March 22, 2019 – 9:31am

Starting April 10, construction on the two-year transformation of Hayward Field and East 15th Avenue will affect access to the Student Recreation Center, UO Psychology Clinic in Straub Hall and Earl Hall.

Access to East 15th Avenue will be fenced off at Onyx Street, and Onyx will have only one lane of traffic heading south.

A portion of the vehicle and bicycle parking on East 15th Avenue next to the Rec Center will be removed as part of the project, but access to the Rec Center’s main entrance on the north side of East 15th will be maintained. Vehicle access to the Rec Center will be via East 15th Avenue and Onyx, while East 15th will be restricted to westbound traffic only. Signs throughout the area will direct pedestrians to detours.

Patrons will be able to enter the psychology clinic via Straub Hall’s main doors on the west side of the building. Residents of Young and Stafford halls within Earl Hall will be able to reach the south-facing doors of those buildings by a fenced pathway that hugs the south side of Straub and Earl. The pathway will not allow access to East 15th Avenue or Onyx Street.

While parking spaces on Onyx Street will not be affected, users will need to access the psychology clinic by following signs around the north and west sides of Straub. Patrons with disabilities will be directed along an accessible route.

The street work will last into Fall May 2020. The East 15th Avenue transformation will progress eastward, allowing access to the Rec Center, Straub and Earl once again from the Onyx Street area, as portions of the project are completed. Access to the psychology clinic should return to normal by late June.

Closures, detours and access details are shown on a project map at the campus map site.

“We’ve pushed schedules and plans to take campus needs into consideration as much as we can, given the demands of the projects,” said Mike Harwood, associate vice president for campus planning and facilities management. “We reached out to the affected users to come up with the best workarounds that conditions give us. Our partner departments have been very helpful in letting us know their priorities.”

“We know this is challenging for users of these buildings,” Harwood said, “but ultimately the transformation of 15th Avenue into a nonmotorized mall is going to be great for all the student, faculty and staff pedestrians and cyclists that use this area so heavily.”

Construction workers and equipment will now enter and leave the site from both East 15th Avenue at Agate Street and the Onyx gate on the west side of East 15th, leaving campus via University Street.
