ODOT is proposing a flashing lights warning system on the Bend Parkway to increase safety at two pedestrian crosswalks.   One at Reed Lane and the other at Badger Road. “A person will come up to the crosswalk and push a button. What that will do is it activates amber warning lights on the Parkway both north and southbound to alert motorists.” ODOT's Rex Holloway says bike-pedestrian warning signs will be placed in the medium and on the right side of the Parkway in advance of the two crosswalks.   Officials are planning on installing the new warning system this spring. Area residents have been pushing for ODOT for a solution after Robert Hunt, 55, was killed in October as he crossed the Parkway.
