The City of Bend invites community members to attend a Stakeholder Sounding Board meeting on November 15. The meeting is being held to review preliminary evaluation results for design concepts to improve the intersection of Highway 97 and Cooley Road. The Stakeholder Sounding Board is an advisory committee that provides on-going feedback on the project. Participation is open to all interested people.

The meeting will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 on Thursday, November 15 in the Board Room at Bend City Hall, 710 NW Wall Street in Bend, Oregon.  To get to the board room, enter the building on the west side.

The City of Bend, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Deschutes County are working together to identify an improvement to the intersection of Highway 97 and Cooley Road that will accommodate traffic for the next ten to twenty years. The project identified through this process will keep traffic moving until improvements to the Highway 97 corridor are implemented. The City of Bend plans to select a preferred design concept for the intersection of Highway 97 and Cooley Road by the end of the calendar year.
