The Oregon Department of Transportation has the details on how they hope to improve a dangerous crosswalk on the Bend Parkway. In October, Bob Hunt, 55, of Bend riding his bike as he was attempting to use the crosswalk near Reed Market Road. ODOT's Peter Murphy says the planning that went into the Parkway was done during a much slower time in Bend: "It's not an easy situation for anybody involved. Just a bit of background is: it's a byproduct of when Bend was a lot smaller, and it seemed like having a crosswalk there for people who live on the westside to come to be able to come to the eastside to shop if you will seemed like the right thing to do at the time. So the unforeseen growth and changes is a big part of what's happened.” One improvement that's been approved is a flashing rectangular light activated by people crossing the Parkway. Signs will also be added to the driving lanes and big stripes and markings will be painted. Those improvements will start in the spring once the snow has cleared.
