BEND, Ore. -

Motorists using the Pinebrook crossing of Murphy Road at the Bend Parkway should be aware of a paving project due on Thursday that could disrupt their travel plans.

Crews working with the Oregon Department of Transportation to build the new Murphy Road overcrossing will be closing Pinebrook for paving and striping purposes overnight.

On Thursday beginning at 7pm until 6am, crews will be paving on Pinebrook, east of the Parkway to 3rd Street, and it will be completely closed.  While the closure is underway, crews will perform the final striping for the road as well.

Motorists should be prepared to find alternatives to using Pinebrook during these hours.
