BEND, OR -- Bend's City Council approved a full slate of street preservation contracts for summer projects, Wednesday night, totaling more than $7 million. Over $5 million is for “grind-and-inlay” and overlay treatments for 50 lane miles, including Skyliner Road, Century Drive, Colorado Avenue and Olney-Penn-Neff. Officials say some of that work will be done at night to minimize traffic disruptions. 


Another $710,709 will go toward Slurry seal on about 60 lane miles, and crews will reconstruct the Shevlin Park and Mount Washington roundabout, at a cost of just over $824,000. Council also authorized a joint venture with Deschutes County to chip-seal 15 lane miles around the city.

Bend's Streets and Operations Director, David Abbas, says there is a small shift toward work on residential roads because main streets are in better shape. For more on the projects and to view a map of the work planned for this summer, visit the city's Street Preservation webpage
