BEND, OR -- Bend will have a new ZIP Code, beginning July first. U.S. Postal Service officials say the change is necessary to provide efficient and cost-effective mail delivery.
The new 97703 ZIP Code impacts some addresses in the current 97701 area. All effected customers will be notified by mail in the next few days. The USPS suggests customers begin using their new zip code right away, although mail with the old zip will still be delivered for one year following the change.
Northern Boundary: All deliveries north of and including NW Skyliners Road.
Western Boundary: All deliveries west of US Highway 97.
Southern Boundary: East on NW Commerce Ave to NW Skyliner Summit Loop, then to NW Washington Drive, South of NW Lakemont Drive onto NW Skyliners Road to its end.
Eastern Boundary: From the furthest north point travelling south on US Highway 97, merging with US Highway 20, continuing south eventually merging with the Bend Parkway until it intersects with the 97702 ZIP boundary just South of NW Colorado Avenue.
Note: Only addresses on the boundary road “US Highway 97” listed above will retain their current 97701 ZIP Code – none of them will be assigned the new 97703 ZIP.
