Project Phase


Project Overview

District staff have been working on safety improvements for the Central Oregon Historic Canal Trail by working with the City of Bend to install safety upgrades at multiple road crossings.

The first crossing completed is where the trail crosses 15th Street south of Reed Market Road near Chloe Lane. Through an interagency agreement, the district provided funding to the City of Bend to construct this crossing as part of the Murphy Road project.

In May 2020, the City of Bend completed a new trail crossing of 3rd Street that includes trail user activated rapid flashing beacons, a center lane refuge island, and new signs and pavement markings, greatly improving trail user safety in this location.

Future safety improvements are planned at Ferguson Avenue and 27th Street crossings.
