Weekly Road and Traffic Report Begins for 2019


The City of Bend will be releasing a weekly road and traffic report each Friday during peak construction season to help members of our community plan the quickest, safest and most reliable routes to their destinations. The weekly report is intended to provide information about various projects within City limits that impact public roadways.


This year we have also launched a new interactive, online map at that will be regularly updated to show the current and upcoming projects that may affect travelers. This map will show lane or road closures on arterials and collectors and full closures on residential streets. To use the interactive map, click and drag the map to move it, or use the + or – buttons to zoom. For information about a specific, highlighted project on the map, click it and a pop-up window will appear with more information.


It will be another busy summer, with road construction, private development projects and occasional special events that can require lane or road closures. The Bend City Council has authorized about $7.04 million for street preservation work in Bend this summer to improve 125 of lane miles of Bend’s roads.  Attached is a map of this year’s street preservation projects. These will be included in weekly road and traffic reports.


The weekly reports will be emailed to the City’s media address group on Fridays, posted on the City’s website and can be received via email by subscribing to Weekly Road and Traffic Reports at
