    Eugene Campus Events and Classes Suspended After 2pm

    December 6th, 2013

    12/6/13, 2:00pm

    The City of Eugene has notified agencies that some city streets should be avoided, due to weather-related issues:

    • Chambers Street from 24th Avenue to the top of the hill
    • 28th Avenue – Almaden to Chambers
    • Ferry Street Bridge
    • Willamette from 32nd to 35th is shut down
    • Off-ramp from 6th Ave to I-105 is shut down

    28th Avenue is currently closed to traffic from Chambers Street to Almaden Street, as several vehicles are stuck in the snow. There were several crashes blocking traffic. City crews are working on a plow truck.  One accident involved a commercial truck that crashed into a car and tree. These have been slow-speed crashes, in which vehicles have slipped or slid into collisions with other vehicles or objects.

    Northbound Ferry Street Bridge is closed from its on-ramp at Mill Street and W. 7th Avenue to Coburg Road. A sander is en route. Some vehicles have been unable to go up the ramp, causing traffic to back up onto 7th Avenue.
