The work, by Wildish Construction of Eugene, is the last piece in $6 million of improvements meant to improve access to the new U.S. Courthouse. Other elements of the overall project included an extension of Hilyard Street taking it north of the courthouse and connecting it to Sixth Avenue, rebuilding Eighth Avenue between Mill and Hilyard streets, extending Ferry Street from Broadway to the new Hilyard extension and building a multiuse path along Hilyard connecting to the river bank trail system.

The rebuilt intersection is the last piece of the courthouse traffic improvements, although some landscaping work will continue until late November. Work on the entire project began in 2006 and included two major phases.
