An open house to present current design plans for the Skyliner's Road Improvement Project will be Tuesday night. Deschutes County Road Department's George Kolb says they hope to make the road amenable to all uses. "It’s going to be widened out; to a width of possible 34 feet, through the main portion of the forest service, through some parcels until you get to the subdivision. Then it will go down to 32 feet, and the reasoning behind that is we're trying to get 6 foot bike lanes on each side of the road, which would be 11 foot travel lanes and 6 foot bike lanes, which would give you your 34 foot width, and then once we get into the subdivision, we would narrow those bike lanes down to 5 feet." Kolb says construction is now slated for 2013; but they want to hear what the public has to say about this preliminary design. The open house is Tuesday night at Miller Elementary from 6 to 8 p.m. and everyone is welcome.
