Bend Transportation Engineer Robin Lewis is going before the Oregon Speed Zone Review Panel in Salem on Thursday to ask th m to decrease the speed on 27th Street between Bear Creek and Reed Market Road.

 

"On 27th, the speed is currently is 45 mph and we would like it reduced to 35 mph -- primarily because of the rear end crashes we're seeing.  People don't have a left turn lane, so when they stop to turn left especially if there's traffic coming from the other way, they  are getting rear ended at very high speeds."

 

The city is also seeking to decrease the speed on Eagle Road form 40 to 30 miles per hour --because that road too doesn't have a left turn lane and there are a lot of residences off that road.

 

The state panel is expected to rule on the request immediately following the meeting Thursday afternoon.
