Road work on a new roundabout in Bend will get underway today.  Work begins on a new roundabout at Brookswood and Powers in southeast Bend. 

 

The intersection will be closed during the construction so drivers will have to go through a detour through a residential neighborhood off of Brookswood.  Bend Transportation Engineering Manager Nick Arnis says this roundabout will improve safety.  “With the roundabout we'll be able to control the traffic flow. 

 

It's such a high volume area in the Brookswood and Powers area.  The roundabout allows traffic to have a gap for drivers to get in.  It also has huge benefits for pedestrians and bicyclists.  We'll have a crossing for them now.”  Construction is expected to last until October. 

 

The other two roundabouts in Bend under construction include one at Empire and 18th and another at Simpson and Mt. Washington.
