Two new roundabouts that were scheduled to open by the end of October are now scheduled to open mid-November.

 

Justin Finestone with the City of Bend says the wintery weather, coupled with some unplanned utility glitches are the reason for the delay.  "The weather's been really good recently and they've made a lot of progress, so tentatively, we're announcing that the 18th & Empire roundabout will open on Wednesday 21st and the Brookswood and Powers on Friday, November 16th. And again, that weather permitting. If the weather turns south again and we get a lot of moisture and snow and cold, then it may be pushed back."

 

Finestone says  the artwork planned for the roundabouts will come later.

 

The roundabout art is not paid for by the city, but is funded by community contributions to the nonprofit "Art in Public Places” that also makes the decision on what will go in the roundabout.
