Major improvements planned for Reed Market Road could make the corridor safer for pedestrians and cyclists in the future. City planners are looking closely at the crash report from Monday’s tragic fatal accident to see if there's something they can do in the short term to make the area safer. In the long term; it's already on the list for major improvements. Bend Transportation Manager Nick Arnis: “I do know that the Reed Market Corridor has always been a top priority in the community for bicycle and pedestrian improvements.” The Reed Market Improvement Project is part of the $30 million bond measure voters passed in May. The improvements there will add sidewalks and bike paths and a middle turn lane all the way from 27th to Third Street.
