January 30th Presentation on ‘Seismic Safety of NW Eugene’s Bridges and Overpasses’

Please plan on attending this Zoom presentation and discussion on a topic that could affect all of us, especially in the Eugene NW Region.

Seismic Safety of NW Eugene’s Bridges and Overpasses
Tuesday, January 30, 2024
6:30 – 8:00 PM


Earthquakes can cause bridges and overpasses to fail, especially if they are not seismically engineered to withstand those risks. In an earthquake disaster, damage to our NW Region bridges and overpasses would affect our ability to evacuate and to receive aid and supplies.

This presentation will be open to anyone to attend, but should be of particular interest to residents and businesses in NW Eugene region neighborhoods, such as Bethel, River Road, and Santa Clara.

  • Learn about the current seismic resilience of our NW Eugene bridges and overpasses as well as any plans to seismically retrofit our nearby bridges and overpasses.
  • This will be a great opportunity to ask emergency preparedness/readiness questions related to this topic.

We are pleased to welcome presenters: Trish Sharma (Eugene Transportation Planner) and Sierra Anderson (Eugene’s Emergency Manager). There will be time for questions and answers. The meeting will be recorded and posted on the Ready NW Eugene — Emergency Preparedness Team channel on YouTube.com.
