SIGN UP FOR
The Murphy Corridor Improvements Project, which is funded through construction, is part of the City of Bend's Transportation Plan and aligns with City Council's goal to improve the movement of people and products around Bend efficiently, safely, and reliably.
Murphy Road is a busy collector route located in Southeast Bend. The project includes transportation improvements along the existing corridor from Parrell Road to Brosterhous Road and the extension of Murphy Road from Brosterhous Road, over BNSF Railway, connecting to 15th Street at Golden Gate Place.
If you have specific questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call the project phone line (541) 322-9919.

April Construction Update
During peak construction season which is typically April through October, the City sends out weekly road and traffic reports each Friday to help members of the community plan the quickest, safest and most reliable routes to their destinations. Sign up to receive the weekly report with information about various projects within City limits that impact the roadways.
- Construction will commence next week and will include the installation of a water line and preliminary earthwork/grading at the location of the future Murphy Road extension. This work will have little to no impact on the travelling public.
