Bend Transportation Engineering Manager, Nick Arnis just gave the Bend City Council an update on what's planned.
They are trying to aleveiate traffic tie-ups from nearby trains. "What we've come up with mitigation. We're going to add another lane circulating in the roundabout. Apparently there's one lane approaching and one lane around and we're going to add an additional lane and we'll have "train ahead" activated types of signing."
Arnis says signs approaching the roundabout will warn drivers when a train is coming and give them an opportunity to avoid the intersection.
Construction is set to start in the summer of 2013 and finish by the fall of 2014.
