The City is pleased to announce that the intersection of Neff Road and Purcell Boulevard is scheduled to open at noon on Monday, December, 11, 2023

Bend, OR – City officials announced that you should expect intermittent lane shifts with flaggers and use designated pedestrian access routes.

The reconstructed intersection will reportedly improve traffic flow and safety for all modes of travel.

The new improved intersection added separate left-turn lanes, new southbound and westbound right turn lanes, wider shared-use paths, street lighting, accessible curb ramps and missing gaps of sidewalk to create a continuous pedestrian corridor.

It also includes new options for people riding bikes to easily get off the street to use shared-use paths and crosswalks at the intersection – similar to roundabouts.

The project, originally scheduled to open earlier this fall, ran into delays when crews found old, unmapped infrastructure remnants, gas, communication and power lines for example, deep under the road.
