Construction activities for this project are scheduled to begin on March 8 with night time single lane closures on Bend Parkway transitioning into full one-direction closure of the Parkway with signed detours starting March 14. Construction activity is scheduled to continue through May 15.

About

For this project, ODOT will complete a 2-inch grind and inlay along the length of corridor to address pavement deterioration and stud rutting, replace signs that have reached their life expectancy, upgrade ADA ramps, and upgrade pedestrian push buttons. 

These changes are needed to repair pavement deterioration, make pedestrian access along this route safer, and improve safety and ease of acccess for people with disabilities. This project will make U.S. 97 safer for all travelers and extend the life of the highway which is an important route for interstate traffic as well as local and business traffic. 

Location

U.S. 97

Cost and Funding

$7.5 million

Contractor

What Problem Will This Improve?

​The​ current condition of this segment of U.S. 97 is deteriorating and making pavement conditions unsafe for travelers. Additionally, the project corridor must have improvements made to ADA ramps and pedestrian crossings in order to stay current with safety requirements.
