Robal Lane Highway 20 roundabout construction

Two big traffic changes are coming next week on Highway 20 in Bend as the North Corridor Project continues.

The new roundabout at Robal Lane will open starting Wednesday, the Oregon Department of Transportation said. The initial opening will be a single-lane RAB, but it will eventually be dual-lane come October.

The intersection has been closed for weeks. Drivers have had to use the Cooley Road roundabout instead.

Also starting Wednesday, drivers will no longer be allowed to turn left from Jamison Street onto Highway 20. That鈥檚 the street that runs in front of the Deschutes County Sheriff鈥檚 Office and Jail. That left turn closure will be permanent, although emergency vehicles can still make that turn from a dedicated driveway.

Drivers will still be able to turn right onto Jamison from Highway 20 and turn right from Jamison onto the highway.

ODOT says the U.S. 20 section of the Bend North Corridor Project is ahead of schedule.

The other part of the project is to shift Highway 97 to the east between Empire Avenue and Cooley Road. That鈥檚 expected to be finished by the end of 2024.
