EUGENE, Ore. -- The Dusk to Dawn emergency shelter in Eugene just finished adding more beds to support the area homeless population. 

On Monday, the shelter on Highway 99 completed the addition of 64 beds for people experiencing homelessness. 

Shelter staff said they have already started filling those beds. The additional beds bring the total capacity at the site to 256. 

The expansion was a joint effort between the City of Eugene and Lane County who split the $257,000 expansion cost. 

St. Vincent de Paul said the expansion should help cut down on their waiting list, which often has between 50 and 100 people waiting for a spot. 

People wanting to stay at Dusk to Dawn can sign up for a space at the Eugene Service Station in person at 450 Hwy 99 N during business hours. Dusk to Dawn operates from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m.
