City of Bend sets open house next week for SE Wilson Avenue Corridor Project

City of Bend

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The city of Bend is inviting members of the community who live, work, play or commute near Wilson Avenue and Ninth Street -- a busy intersection soon to get a roundabout -- to the Wilson Avenue Corridor Project design open house from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9 at the Bend Fieldhouse in Vince Genna Stadium at 401 SE Roosevelt Avenue.

The open house will include an overview of the project, design concepts, timelines and an opportunity to speak to the project team. This is an indoor event. Masks are required.

Can’t make it in person? Visit the online open house at bendoregon.gov/wilson from Dec. 9-23.

The Wilson Avenue Corridor Project is a 2020 Transportation GO Bond project. The project includes improvements along the existing corridor from Second to 15th streets. The goal is to improve east-west connectivity and enhance facilities for biking and walking.

During the roadway construction, the existing water line system will also be upgraded to current standards and overhead utility lines will be moved underground.

PROJECT BENEFITS

  • Safety improvements for all users of the corridor
  • Infrastructure modernization
  • Improving east-west connectivity

      1. Franklin and Greenwood don’t intersect and an intersection wasn’t mentioned in my comment. Franklin and Greenwood cross the tracks and 3rd st (east) like Wilson does

    1. Tax and spend Dems. Enough! Tax dollars do not need to be used for this kind of project. They think we can just belly up to the bar every time and suck my hard earned money from my pockets. Improvement is needed but not with taxes! GoFundMe or other voluntary contribushuns.

    1. Agreed! Unless there is an overpass or it is a double lane roundabout ALL directions will be stopped by the train. Just like the previous change in lanes going west on Wilson made turning north on 9th impossible when a train goes by this will negatively impact all directions on an already terrible intersection. I agree that something needs to be done, but this is not the answer
