The City of Bend is looking to revive the Third Street improvement project that was put on the back burner on 2007, thanks to the economy.

 

Nick Arniss, City Transportation Manager says they are looking forward to actually beginning the project up again.

 

"We’re excited about it, because we want to see in the short term some things we can do immediately to improve safety and improve sidewalks and curb ramps and to be looking in the long term to some really major ideas. We’ll be doing some short term things also; good of the order of trying to improve things that are out there right now."

 

Arniss says they are considering possibly narrowing the street between Revere and Franklin and making it more pedestrian and bike friendly, but they are open to lots of ideas.

 

The state has given the city about $115,000 to hire a consultant and get the project off the ground.
