US 97 Safety Assessment

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is conducting a Safety Assessment for US 97 between the north city limits of the City of Bend and the south city limits of the City of Redmond. Within this segment, 108 crashes were reported between 2009 and 2013. The focus of the project is to identify countermeasures that may reduce severe and fatal crashes along the corridor. The safety plan will include low-to moderate-cost projects that can be implemented in the short or mid-term future, or phased into larger projects.

The project is being led by a team of staff from ODOT and Kittelson & Associates, Inc. If you have any questions about the project, please contact Dan Serpico, the ODOT Project Manager, at
