Take Interstate 5 south to Eugene and turn onto the I-105 Westbound exit (exit 194b). From I-105, take the first exit for Eugene Downtown / Coburg Road. This is a split exit, so stay in the left hand lane for Eugene Downtown and the U of O. After you merge, move into the left lane as you go over the Ferry Street Bridge. This lane will become the right lane after the overpass. Continue as the road curves left (this is now Broadway / Franklin Blvd). Turn right at Agate and travel up to 15th St. Hayward Field is located on the corner of Agate and 15th.
From the South
Take Interstate 5 North to the Eugene / Franklin Blvd. / UO exit (exit 192). This merges with Franklin Blvd westbound.
