It’s not the typical road project that usually has delays. The roundabout reconstruction at Mt. Washington, Century and Reed Market is completed. Officials with the City of Bend and all involved in the project were on hand today at noon to cut the ribbon on the new roundabout. "It’s about the 7 or 6 year life span we're noticing roundabouts are falling apart much faster than anticipated. And so we're looking for a way to improve the longevity of the roundabouts, so maintenance decided to go with a cement treated base. The advantage to this is: it's a little more expensive in the front end,  but you get a road that lasts about 40 with 10% failure." Kevin Ramsey with the City says they typical road fails after seven years, so after about 14 years, the road will have paid for itself. Ramsey says they are very please that this project is completed in record time, because with the Labor Day holiday approaching, many people will want to get up to Mt. Bachelor and hiking trails for their end of summer fun.
