Bend drivers, prepare for road construction season. City crews are ready to start more than 2.5 million dollars’ worth of street preservation work.Streets and Operations Supervisor Paul Neiswonger tells Central Oregon Daily News resurfacing could begin as early as April. He said this year the City will pave Mt. Washington, from Summit Drive, eastside, over by Rivers Edge Golf Course, around over to Shevlin Park and the Mount Washington roundabout. Neiswonger said resurfacing and other maintenance is much cheaper than allowing damage to get to the point of needing to be fully re-paved. Drivers are asked to be patient with crews over the next several months.
