Ken Helm is from Beaverton, but he actually graduated from Bend High School.

 

He will be deciding whether the traffic and parking concerns of some neighbors will prevent the college from going forward.

 

The college presented its case with traffic engineer, Joe Bessman.

 

"The morning peak is most pronounced on Mt. Washignton.  Colleges typically start their classes at 8 A.M.  Collrge peak times are usually between 11 and 3 and we can narrow it down even more, more like 2:50 to 3:10."

 

Bessman says the nearby roundabouts were built to handle much more traffic than they currently do.

 

He says even factoring in maximum usage, thse roundabouts should be able to handle the college's increased traffic.

 

A decision is expected by the end of July.
