New Safety Feature for the Parkway


Crews are out right now in Bend hoping to make a dangerous crosswalk on the Parkway safer. Last October, Bob Hunt, 55, of Bend was struck and killed while attempting to use the crosswalk near Reed Market Road. ODOT's Peter Murphy says right now work crews are doing the initial work to install a pedestrian activated warning light. “And so motorists should be aware; we’re currently installing it we're drilling the bore holes. In the next two weeks or so they'll be some real progress.” Murphy says the new device will be a big bright yellow rectangular light that flashes rapidly when someone is in the crosswalk.
