Some very long road reconstruction projects have been completed. George Kolb, Interim Director for the Deschutes County Road Department says there is some smooth sailing down in Sunriver and La Pine now that they’ve completed some big reconstruction projects. "Basically what we did is we took the existing roads, most of their widths were around 27-28 foot widths, and where we could, we actually widened out the roads out to 30-foot widths. So what you'll get is roughly an 11 foot travel road and 3 1/2- 4 foot paved bike shoulder where, before you maybe had one to two feet."  Kolb says this project cost about $3.2 million for the 11 mile project on Spring River Road, Century Drive and La Pine State Rec Roads. He adds that they are done with all road reconstruction projects for the year and will begin a little road maintenance and get ready for snow removal.
