If the intersection of 18th and Empire is part of your daily commute, your travel time will be getting a bit longer starting Wednesday.  A roundabout is being built at the intersection and construction is expected to close the intersection for close to three months. Nick Arnis, Transportation Manager City of Bend, says the roundabout will make the intersection safer.  “We know that with a roundabout and getting kinda people cued up and slowing down around that intersection those crashes will mostly be eliminated."  This construction is part of a $30 million bond measure, which will fund eight different projects around the Bend area to address ongoing congestion and safety issues.  One of the detours is through a residential area, so motorists are reminded to watch their speed and to be mindful of children in the road.
