The Awbrey Butte Waterline Improvement Project will improve Bend’s ability to deliver water across the City and increase the system’s resiliency and reliability by installing approximately 4.25 miles of pipeline.
Project Update – March 2023 Currently, there is limited fieldwork planned for March. However, residents will receive notifications of any changes.
On May 9, 2023, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, the City of Bend will host an informational meeting for Phase 1 of the Awbrey Butte Waterline Improvement Project. The meeting will cover essential topics, such as the project's goals and purpose, construction phasing, construction impacts and the timeline of the subprojects. We invite you to meet our project team members and learn about our plans to keep our neighbors informed. Phase 1 improvements will begin in June and be constructed in stages through the winter of 2023 to minimize traffic impacts.
Portland Avenue roadway improvements will be built as a synergy project concurrent with the Awbrey Butte Distribution Improvement Project. Safety, traffic calming and multimodal connectivity improvements along the Portland Avenue corridor are currently being evaluated and are in the planning phase. The design of potential improvements along the corridor will begin this spring. The City plans to hold an in-person meeting to discuss the improvements with the public this summer.
The City is committed to keeping neighbors informed throughout the project through the project website, public informational meetings, mailings, emails, and door hangers. In advance of construction activities in your neighborhood, residents will receive a more detailed notification with specific information regarding construction impacts. For more information, contact the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also monitor current and upcoming detours and closures at www.bendoregon.gov/traffic.

Community Survey Begins Thursday 12/1/22; Results will be shared with City Council
The City of Bend seeks community feedback to guide priorities and direction for the next two years. People in Bend may receive a call or a text in early December asking participants to answer questions about the City and City services. Phone calls and texts requesting survey participation will begin December 1.
The community survey intends to get a sense of how Bend residents perceive City services and to assess what City services the community prioritizes. The phone survey should take about 10 minutes. Community participation will help the City set priorities and will be presented to the Bend City Council as they embark on their next round of biennial goal setting.
Also, for those who don’t get randomly chosen for a call on a cell phone or a landline, the City will launch a similar online Community Survey on December 12 so everyone can have an opportunity to provide input. The online survey will be available in English and Spanish. Online survey results will complement the representative phone survey and will also be shared with the Council. Watch bendoregon.gov for the online survey later in December.
