Eugene Train Depot

Eugene, Oregon



The Eugene Train Depot, built in 1908 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, currently serves riders of Amtrak's immensely popular Coast Starlight and Amtrak Cascades passenger trains, which run up and down the west coast. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is only one of five masonry depots that still exist along the original Southern Pacific West Coast line.

This was the second phase of a project aimed at enhancing multi-modal service to the public and creating a safe and easily recognized public transportation service center in a city that values alternative transportation options.

Site improvements included updates to the site master plan; roadway, streetscaping, pedestrian, bicycle, and parking improvements; landscaping; and signing, among other amenities.

Aesthetic value was extremely important to the success of this project, and OBEC's designers incorporated visually appealing elements such as tinted decorative concrete and attractive lighting features.
