Franklin Avenue to close briefly Wednesday; crews will repair damaged underpass

The City of Bend and ODOT will close one lane of Franklin Avenue for a few hours starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning to fix the damage caused by a truck that hit the underpass late last month.

One lane of traffic will remain open with flaggers but delays and congestion are expected. Use alternate routes if possible.

The pedestrian paths on both sides of the road will remain open.
