A project that always raises a lot of public interest is coming back to life. The Federal Highway Administration and Western Federal Lands Highway Division is holding an open house to present information about the proposed reconstruction of Skyliners Road. In partnership with Deschutes County and the Deschutes National Forest, the WFL proposes to reconstruct to road to provide a durable surface and to widen the paved road to accommodate the mixed uses pm the road. The Skyliners Road Improvement Project starts at the western city limits of Bend and extends westerly for about 8.4 miles to the junction with Forest Service Road 4603. Construction is currently scheduled for spring of 2013; but the open house is Tuesday, June 14th from 6 to 8 pm at Miller Elementary. They will encourage questions.
