Bend MPO Role:

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is sponsoring this project in coordination with the City of Bend and the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO). The results of the overall planning effort (Phase 1 and Phase 2) will become a part of the 2019 BMPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan, but will also inform, and be informed by, related regional planning efforts, such as the City of Bend Transportation System Plan.

MPO Parkway Plan Decision Tree

The project will be overseen by a Project Management Team (PMT) that includes the sponsoring agency (ODOT), the BMPO, the City of Bend, and the project consultant team.

The Project Management Team is responsible for day-to-day project coordination and guidance.  The BMPO Policy Board is ultimately responsible for making final project decisions and recommendations.  See the US97 Parkway Charter.
