As part of a State Gas Tax increase, you started paying 6¢ more per gallon of gasoline on January first. ODOT's Peter Murphy says the Legislature passed a Jobs and Transportation Bill that contains big projects across the state.  He says one large project is slated for the Bend area: “The project that got targeted is the Murphy Road Overcrossing on the south side of town. So it was $25 million set aside for what is really a $45 million project out there. But it will get the situation in hand.  I guess is the best way to put it;  we'll be able to make some changes that will actually improve the flow of traffic on the south side of town, plus put a lot of people to work too." He says the project will eliminate two stop lights on the highway. Aany big highway project typically comes with some public controversy.  He says hey hope to minimize negative impacts on people in that area. Peter Murphy was a guest this morning on KBND's “Your Town.”
