Bulletin Staff Report

Drivers in east Bend are reminded to take alternatives routes as the city closes 15th Street southbound traffic to work on roundabout excavation this week.

The closure, which began this week, is to allow the city to work on several improvements to the Murphy Road corridor. This week, city staff will do underground work for the roundabout, install a light pole at Chloe Lane and prepare the west side of 15th Street for construction of a curb between Chloe Lane and Ferguson Road.

Drivers will still be able to drive northbound on 15th Street, but the speed limit has been temporarily reduced to 25 mph from Humber Lane to Ferguson Road.
