BEND, OR -- The Bend City Council authorized a $2.77 million dollar contract with Knife River, Wednesday night, for summer street preservation. Projects include night time repaving of Wall and Bond streets downtown, and represent a total of 23 lane miles of work. The city says arterial and collector streets are the highest priority.


An open house is scheduled for next month, to allow the public to learn more about project timelines. Officials will be available at City Hall from 4:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 8. 


In a statement issued after the City Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Sally Russell said, "Keeping our streets drivable is on everybody's minds in Bend these days, especially after last winter. Once again, Council has pulled dollars from one-time funding sources to get close to our annual goal of $6 million for street maintenance funding. Whether you live on the east or west side of Bend, projects are scheduled that will affect you. Be ready for some better roads by this fall."
