Lane County is the fourth most-populous county in Oregon and the third-most populous metropolitan statistical area (MSA) after the Portland and Salem areas.  The county’s 382,647 residents are concentrated within a relatively small region around the Eugene and Springfield urban area. Sixty percent of the county’s residents live in incorporated cities within a 30 mile radius of Eugene, largely along Interstate 5.  The remainder of Lane County’s population is located in rural areas including the corridor between Florence and Dunes City on the Pacific Coast, and the Oakridge area in the Cascade foothills.
