Go Bond Project Accomplishments include 12.7 lane miles of new pavement, 4 new roundabouts, 5.6 miles of ADA compliant sidewalks and 181 curb ramps, roundabouts have reduced collisions, 14th Street stormdrains will reduce runoff into the Deschutes, and 59 new streetlights installed.

It’s time to celebrate the completion of the 2011 voter-approved $30 million General Obligation Bond that allowed the City to upgrade major street corridors and intersections all over town.

In May 2011, Bend voters passed a General Obligation Bond Measure to fund street improvements throughout our City. This allowed the City of Bend to authorize $30 million to upgrade several major street corridors and intersections. In addition to upgrading our transportation infrastructure to improve safety and congestion, the GO Bond program has supported hundreds of jobs, the majority which have been filled locally.


  • Safety: Intersections were selected in large part because of the severity and types of crashes occurring at each.
  • Employment: Construction of the voter approved projects is expected to generate 1,100 jobs, the vast majority of which could be filled locally.
  • City-wide Improvements: The projects benefit all modes of traffic, reduce congestion, and are geographically distributed  throughout the City. 
  • Transparency: A comprehensive communications program will keep Bend citizens up to date on progress and ensure accountability in how the tax dollars are being spent
