ODOT to begin Bend Parkway repaving project; overnight detours planned

ODOT on Monday will begin a $7.5 million paving project of more than six miles of the Parkway in Bend.

The project will include night-time single-lane closures on the Parkway and transition to full one-direction closure with signed detours starting March 14.

Construction activity is scheduled to continue through May 15.

Signed detours will redirect traffic to the business route on 3rd Street, which doubles as the U.S. 97 business route.

The project was awarded to Knife River and will include two inches of new pavement the length of the project corridor to address deterioration and rutting.

Additional improvements will include 64 new ADA curb ramps, push-button controllers and other upgrades at pedestrian signal crossings.

Closures will take place nightly from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday night to Friday morning.
