Our community has said traffic congestion and safety is Bend’s most pressing problem. Bend residents want to see projects built that improve traffic flow and safety for people who drive, ride bicycles and walk.
The City is planning for our transportation future and addressing some immediate needs.
The City has been working with a Council-appointed community advisory group for about two years, looking into all elements of travel and traffic and identifying worthy projects for people who drive, ride bikes, walk, and use transit.
Many more projects can be completed with additional funding, and many options have been discussed as part of a long-range funding strategy. One of the funding options that support the projects that improve flow and safety include a General Obligation bond in May 2020. The proposed amount for a bond or a final list of projects has not been determined yet, and additional outreach is ongoing.
If you haven’t already, help us narrow down a list of projects into Citywide priorities that voters strongly support by taking this One Minute Survey:

The City Council is expected to reach a decision by February on the possibility of asking voters to approve the bond measure in 2020.
