The City of Bend is hoping to get some funding from the Oregon Department of Transportation's flexible funding program to improve some portions of Third Street. Bend Accessibility Manager Susan Duncan says they have identified a long stretch of Third Street that really needs help: “Primarily there for to support bicycle work, pedestrian work, transit work and to really help with the infrastructure. And so we've proposed for the south Third Street, which the Business 97 area for pedestrian access improvements from Franklin to Murphy Road." Duncan says they have applied for about $320,000 and if approved, it will provide lots of jobs to get the work done and the businesses along Third Street will benefit from the improvements too. Duncan says they should know by early February if the funding is approved.
