The $30 million worth of road projects voters approved in Bend will get started next summer. The first step is for the City to hire a consulting firm to oversee all the planned projects. Bend Transportation Engineering Manager Nick Arnis briefed the City Council at their meeting this week. “We're really asking for a consultant to come and look at all the project and decide which ones can be done now and schedule the remaining ones for the remainder of the construction season.” Some of the projects includes roundabouts at 18th and Empire, Simpson and Mt. Washington and Brookswood and Powers, in addition to work on Reed Market Road.
