August 14, 2020 - Hydraulic Design of Coyote Creek Bridges
Speaker: Gary Wolff, PE, D.WRE, CFM
Description: Lane County is currently working on the design of road improvements for Territorial Highway located southwest of Eugene. As part of the project a 1,500-foot section of the road will be raised where it crosses the floodplain of Coyote Creek. This talk will present the hydraulic design of the road crossing that included two-dimensional (2D) hydraulic modeling. Advances in the modeling software are making the use of 2D modeling an increasingly common practice for the hydraulic design of bridges where complex hydraulic conditions are known to exist.

October 13, 2020 - Linn Road Reconstruction: Creative Solutions to Improving Community Connectivity
Speakers: Robert Miller, PE; Greg Reince, PE
Description: Linn Road is the centerpiece corridor between Highway 62 and the City of Eagle Point’s downtown district. The project provided ADA-compliant ramps at all of the impacted intersections, one travel lane, and one bike lane in each direction. Additionally, the project included planter swales, retaining walls, and sleeves inserted in the sidewalks for flags during the City’s annual 4th of July ceremony. Finally, to help create a more welcoming entrance to the City, overhead utilities lines were relocated underground wherever feasible.
