BEND, OR -- Construction resumes Monday on the new roundabout at Empire and Purcell, in northeast Bend. Road crews plan to maintain two-way travel on Purcell, but drivers should expect minor delays, at times, with flaggers in place.
The roundabout should be complete in June, and is part of a larger project to eventually connect Empire to Butler Market Road near 27th Street. The work was funded in the city's 2017 budget. Also part of the Empire Corridor Improvement Project, landscaping work continues between 18th and Purcell.
