BEND, Ore. -

Preparation and application of final striping for the three new roundabouts in Bend is scheduled for the week of October 14. 

Roundabout striping will be completed one at a time and is anticipated to take two days each.  To accommodate the project, the intersections will close between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day.  The anticipated schedule for the roundabout striping is as follows:

  • 18th and Empire:  Monday Oct. 14 and Tuesday Oct. 15
  • Brookswood and Powers:  Wednesday Oct. 16 and Thursday Oct. 17
  • Mt. Washington and Simpson: Friday Oct. 18 and Saturday Oct. 19 

Electronic message boards will be placed in advance of the work to notify the public.  A detour route will be signed during the closures to direct traffic around the intersections.  Schedules may change due to weather conditions.
