SISTERS, Ore. - Beginning this Saturday, access to Barclay Drive at U.S. Highway 20 in Sisters will be closed for about 4-5 weeks while the contractor, Knife River, performs excavation, places base rock, installs curbs & sidewalks, paves, etc. in order to complete the Barclay side of a new roundabout.
The majority of work will occur Monday through Saturday during daytime hours, ODOT said Friday.
Highway 20 will remain open, the agency said, and the work will not result in significant delays for through-traffic.
Travelers trying to access Barclay Drive should follow signed detour routes using Pine Street.
The purpose of this $3.2 million project is to improve safety, mobility and access at the intersection of Highway 20 and Barclay Drive located just west of downtown Sisters.
The roundabout will be constructed in three phases to minimize impact to the traveling public.
Construction of the roundabout improvement will be completed by Memorial Day.
