BEND, Ore. -- Construction crews continue work on the Deschutes Market Overcrossing project located between Bend and Redmond. The project will consist of extending the first phase of the Deschutes Market Overcrossing project that crossed over Highway 97 east to connect into Deschutes Market Road and will consist of building a structure over the railroad tracks.
Part of this project will involve a temporary bypass road on Deschutes Market Road to avoid the construction. Drivers are urged to use caution when on this portion of Deschutes Market Road. This construction will last until October 30, 2009.
Traffic may be impacted during this project and drivers can expect delays of up to 20 minutes during construction. Hours of operation will be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Drivers should use alternate routes where possible.
