The best way to get there is to drive east on W 13th St (one way street) and turn right where W 13th intersects with Jefferson. If you are coming from I-5, take exit 194B to merge onto I-105W / OR-126W toward Eugene. The freeway ends. Continue straight on Jefferson St about a half mile to destination.
