In July, the City of Bend will kick off a nearly two-year construction project to build a new sewer line down 27th Street – a hub for medical, retail, employment and residential users. This will bring considerable construction and heavy equipment to the area as crews dig significant trenches along the 27th Street corridor and into Medical Center Drive.
This project will change how thousands of Bend residents access medical facilities, shopping and more. The City strongly encourages everyone who uses 27th Street to visit our 27th Street Sewerline Project Kickoff meeting to prepare for these changes.
- 5 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 at Desert Streams Church parking lot (near the intersection of 27th Street and Bear Creek Road).
At this meeting, project managers will outline the project, explain target dates and schedules, and discuss the end result – a more sustainable and much needed sewer system. Bend’s sewer system – crucial public infrastructure – is at capacity. For information visit our website at www.bendoregon.gov.
Also, Bend City Councilors Nathan Boddie and Casey Roats, who participated in the Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Group process that led to a citywide plan for sewer improvement priorities across Bend, will be relocating their office hour time and location (regularly scheduled for the fourth Monday evening of the month) to the 27th Street area to discuss sewer plans or any topic of residents’ concerns.
Please drop in and meet your councilors:
- 6 – 7 p.m. on Monday, June 27, in the café at Barnes & Noble at 2690 NE Hwy 20 in the Forum Shopping Center. Project managers from the sewer project will also be at this office hour.
