Bend adjusting Purcell Blvd.-Butler Market Rd. intersection


On Wednesday starting at 7 p.m., the city of Bend will be adding left turn lanes and adjusting traffic signal heads on the north and south legs of the Northeast Purcell Boulevard and Butler Market Road intersection.

Officials said the adjustment will decrease delays for traffic approaching the signal from the north and south.

The intersection adjustments will require the intersection to be controlled by flaggers for about six hours on Wednesday night. Expect delays if you are traveling at that time.

In addition to the work to the north and south legs of the intersection, flashing yellow arrow signals will be added to the left turn lanes on the east and west legs of the intersection. The added signals will decrease delays for traffic turning left off of Butler Market Road and onto Purcell Boulevard.

The intersection adjustments are intended to improve traffic flow which have been affected by detours associated with the Empire Corridor Improvements Project. These improvements will remain in place after Phase 1 of this project is completed. More information on the project:
