Once the snow clears in the spring some important safety improvements will be made at 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 explains the changes they'll make to improve the visibility in that area.  "One of the improvements that's been approved now is to put a rectangular flashing light there that is activated by folks that are going to be crossing the parkway there, as opposed to continuously flashing. So that’s been approved. We’re going to put signs on both sides; both the outside and inside of the driving lanes so that people can notice that the Parkway crosswalk is coming up. And we’re also going to be painting stripes and markings on the highway itself so that people can become alerted to that.” Murphy says a special task force studied the area and came up with the suggestions.
