BEND, OR -- Amidst a slew of construction projects tying up various locations around Bend, city officials say three events will add to traffic woes on Saturday, including Slide the City and a duathlon.
Slide the City : 12-7 p.m. on College Way between Saginaw Ave and Newport Ave, with event parking available throughout the surrounding neighborhood and Westside Church.
Malheur rally : until 5 p.m. the road up Pilot Butte and the gate leading to the summit will be closed. The park will be open to visitors walking to the butte.
USAT Duathlon : 5 a.m.–5 p.m. starting and ending at Summit High School. Click HERE for course maps.
Bike Road Closures/Detours:
o Skyliners Road from Skyline Ranch Road to approximately one mile past NF 300 (note: there will be one queued vehicular lane throughout this stretch of road monitored by Certified Flaggers and Bend PD motorcycles – please allow additional time as delays are likely. Access to Tumalo Falls is permitted; however, all are encouraged to plan trips to Tumalo Falls for days other than Saturday)
o NW Crossing Drive from Skyline Ranch Road to NW Crosby Drive
o NW Crosby Drive from Skyliners Road to NW Discovery Park Drive
Run Road Closures/Detours:
o NW Clearwater Drive from NW York Drive/Entrance and Exit to Summit HS to NW Charbonneau Street
o Discovery Trail from NW Clearwater Drive to NW Lolo Drive
o NW Lolo Drive from NW Crossing to Discovery Trail (note: this stretch will still remain open to westbound and eastbound vehicular traffic. This stretch will also have two-way run traffic delineated by cones. This will allow vehicular traffic to flow as normal, businesses to stay open, and run traffic to operate safely)
o NW Crossing Drive from NW Lolo Drive to Skyliners Road
o Skyline Ranch Road from Skyliners Road to Broken Top Drive (note: Broken Top Drive/Hosmer Lake Drive will still be open for vehicle access from Skyline Ranch Road, and that residents of the Macalpine Loop will need to enter/exit through the southern access point and will be queued in/out by certified flaggers through a vehicular access lane).
