ODOT Plans Hwy 26 Work In Downtown Prineville

PRINEVILLE, OR -- Oregon’s Department of Transportation is preparing to start a project in Prineville, along Highway 26. Much of it is aesthetic streetscape work. "This is going to improve a bunch of sidewalks, they’ll have new ADA ramps and some more safe pedestrian crossings, as well. So, it’ll really enhance your experience if you’re driving or if you’re walking or biking through downtown Prineville." ODOT’s Kacey Davey says crews will also upgrade traffic signals in the stretch between Meadow Lakes Drive and Combs Flat Road. "It’s really going to be a nice facelift for downtown Prineville, to improve all the sidewalks and all the intersections, and everything."

ODOT has budgeted $10 million for the project, "And $3 million of that’s coming from the House Bill 2017 funding," Davey tells KBND News, "The other seven- that’s usually identified through the city’s or ODOT’s money, or grant funding."
