U.S. 20 Empire to Greenwood

Design Phase

Region 4: Central Oregon (Deschutes)

The Oregon Department of Transporation and the City of Bend are partnering to design and construct improvements to the highway infrastructure on 
U.S. 20 between Empire Avenue and Greenwood Avenue (also known as 3rd street), and on Greenwood Avenue from 3rd Street east to Purcell Blvd.​



Kick off - June 2018
Advanced plans - August 2021
Bid let - April 2022​



U.S. 20 is an important local arterial running through the City of Bend and a critical part of the state and regional transportation system. 
However this highway infrastructure has significant needs for maintaining safety, traffic flow, and access for all travelers and users of the highway system. 

ODOT is separating the work along this corridor into constructible phases: Phase 1 includes improvements on U.S. 20/3rd Street,
 Phase 2 includes improvements on U.S. 20/Greewood Avenue. The Empire Avenue improvements will become part of the Bend North Corridor Improvements project.
