The city of Bend tried to get the state's speed zone reivew panel to lower the speeds on both roads, bu the panel said no.

 

Bend Transportation Engineer Robin Lewis.

 

"They really put all theirs eggs in the basket --  the road feels fast,  so drivers drive fast, without regard to some of the safety issues we were trying to get them to consider."

 

The city wanted to lower the speed limit on 27th from Bear Creek to Reed Market from 45 to 35 miles per hour .. and on Eagle Road from 40 to 30 miles per hour.

 

The city had heard from residents complaining of requent rear end accidents because there are no left turn lanes on either road.
