A La Pine woman died in an accident last weekend as she crossed Highway 97.  Leaders in La Pine say two many people are dying or are getting injured, and they are looking at doing some things to make it safer.

 

La Pine Mayor Ken Mulenex says first they have to inform pedestrians and drivers alike to be on the lookout for each other.  There's also an ODOT overpass project for the  Wickiup Junction area that is waiting for funding.

 

“It's a shovel ready program that's a top priority of ODOT.  It's in the $22 million range.  But with our economy, the stimulus dollars are not there.  We’ve been told if we get some stimulus money it will get taken off the shelf.”  It’s hoped the project will be completed in the next couple years.  In the meantime, the City hopes to put up some caution signs along the highway to warn drivers and pedestrians to be on the lookout for each other.
