BEND, OR -- Crews will start reconstruction of Bend’s South Mirror Pond Parking Lot, later this month, taking away one downtown parking option for several months. City officials say the project is part of an overall effort to increase downtown safety.

 

The plan involves new curbs and asphalt, aimed at improving the lot's condition. Changes to trash enclosures, the center landscape strip and western boundary should increase safety within the lot. Crews will also improve functionality by accommodating internal circulation and adjusting parking stall dimensions to meet current standards. 

 

Officials say the south Mirror Pond lot was identified as a "high demand" lot in a 2017 Downtown Strategic Management Parking Plan, and it was noted as a trouble spot in the 2016 Problem Oriented Policing project conducted in downtown Bend. 

 

Safety Improvements Approved for Downtown Bend (08/18/2017)

 

They expect minimal traffic disruptions and night work should only take place one night. However, drivers will not be allowed to park in the lot during construction. Click HERE for information on downtown parking options. The project should be complete by early June.
