27th Street Sewer Project
The following is an update to the 27th Street Sewer Line Project, date December 1, 2016.
BIG CHANGE COMING SOON!
- Beginning the week of December 12, northbound through traffic on 27th Street will closed between Reed Market Road and Bear Creek Road. This is the beginning of an extended lane closure. Detours signs will direct traffic to 15th Street and north to Hwy 20. With two construction crews setting up to operate within the corridor from Reed Market to Bear Creek there is no opportunity for through northbound traffic. Expect increased congestion to the 15th Street/Reed Market roundabout. Please allow more time for trips through this area.
- Southbound traffic between Bear Creek Road and Reed Market Road will continue through the work zone with access to all businesses along 27th Street available at all times. During the construction project, various intersections will be closed to cross traffic. However, you should always be able to get to your destination via alternate routes. Again, please pay close attention to detour signs along the 27th Street corridor.
- The Bear Creek Road intersection at 27th Street will re-open simultaneously with the work described above.
- Work continues on 27th Street north of Highway 20 at and near the intersection of Mary Rose Place.
Different signs/warnings along the corridor. Big and little, they’re all there for a reason.
Have a good week,

Energy Efficiency Direct Installation Project
As part of Bend's participation in the ongoing Bend Energy Challenge project, a special energy-efficiency program for homes is coming up in November and December. In collaboration with the Energy Trust of Oregon, free LED bulbs, low flow showerheads and water-saving faucet aerators will be installed in Bend area homes by our visiting AmeriCorps team!
The Bend Energy Challenge, a program of the Environmental Center, is offering a free and convenient way to make your home more energy efficient. Through the LED Light Bulb Installation Program, The Bend Energy Challenge will install up to 16 LED bulbs in your house – all for free.
Today’s Light Emitting Diodes, commonly known as LED light bulbs, can be six to seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights and cut energy use by more than 80 percent. LEDs can also last 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs.
During an installation appointment, the team will determine and address highest traffic areas in the home. Existing incandescent bulbs will be replaced with up to 16 energy-saving LEDs in standard or recessed can fixtures. As a result of the installation, residents can save up to $160 on utility bills each year.
For even bigger savings, the team can also install water-saving features such as high power, low flow showerheads and kitchen aerators.
Residents can sign up for the program at http://www.bendenergychallenge.org/freebulbs and will receive a phone call to schedule the installation. The installation appointment takes approximately one hour.
This program is made possible through collaboration with the Energy Trust of Oregon. The Bend Energy Challenge is able to install light bulbs for customers served by Central Electric Coop and Pacific Power, and water-saving features for customers who heat their water with Pacific Power or Cascade Natural Gas. The team can only replace incandescent bulbs in high traffic areas. This offer is currently available in zip codes 97701, 97702 and 97703.
