Now that Bend voters have approved a General Bond to improve City roads, Mayor Jeff Eager says the road projects are getting prioritized: "My understanding is that some of the intersection improvements that will probably be roundabouts will be prioritized first. It depends on where the projects are in terms of how far along they are in design. And the ones thatare farther along and can be done with minimal disruptions to traffic, presumably, will be done sooner." Eager says the only concern the City Council has heard about the proposed roundabouts is the interaction between the train tracks on Reed Market Road. But, he says the wording of the bond will allow some latitude with road design, so that if a roundabout isn't feasible for certain roads, they can re-design it. Eager adds that the priority of work will depend on the design stages, but it will be a public process.
