Bend North Corridor Project

Design Phase

Region 4: Central Oregon (Bend, Deschutes)

Meetings and Events

​We coordinated with the public in over 50 meetings with neighborhood organizations, stakeholder groups and the general public to collaborate on the planning, design and construction of the Bend North Corridor project. No additional meetings and events are scheduled, but as the project continues to move forward, we will reach out about project status and updates.


Construction will begin this fall, when you may begin to see minor traffic impacts, mostly at night. More significant traffic impacts along U.S. 20 will begin as early as February of 2023, while impacts along U.S. 97 will not begin until later in 2023 and continue throughout the life of the project. All work is scheduled to be fully complete by December 2024.​



​U.S. 97 is the main north-south highway through the central portion of Oregon, connecting Oregon to California and Washington. U.S. 20 is a primary east-west highway in Oregon. In the Bend area, both highways are primary routes that help people get through town and connect to shopping, dining, businesses, schools and recreation. Central Oregon's population growth over the last decade has increased traffic congestion and, in turn, reduced safety for motor vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. This project will address congestion, safety and mobility associated within the project limits.
