BEND, OR -- Murphy Road is about to undergo a serious construction project, and the City of Bend wants to make sure residents and business owners know what to expect.
Assistant Project Manager, Alex Doza, says there will be two Open House events Tuesday to give those who'd like to attend more than just one option, as many, if not most, of Bend's residents will be affected by this extensive project. "The project will include extending Murphy Road, from the existing terminus at Brosterhouse Road, East over the BNSF railroad tracks, via a bridge overcrossing, and connect to 15th Street. It'll also include complete street upgrades on Murphy Road between Parrell Road and Brosterhouse Road."
The first Open House will be held from 9 to 11 am, and the second from 5 to 7 pm, in the staging area for the project, across the street from the Bridges Development on 15th. She says, "The Open House will be, primarily, to explain the portion of construction that's upcoming for this project, which includes the roundabout at 15th street and the future Murphy Road extension, as well as the sidewalk extension along 15th Street."
The project will launch this month. Doza says it's completion will greatly improve Bend's Connectivity, Safety, and Mobility.
