An 11-mile stretch of US Hwy 97 between Bend and Redmond is being repaved, and workers will be on the job the week of the event. Paving will be done at night from 7pm to 7am Monday-Friday, and 8pm to 7am on Sunday.
Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction during paving operations, although delays will most likely be minimal.
Those of you traveling up from the southern regions will probably be the most affected since many of you will arrive on Friday evening. Although alternate routes are available, 97 will most likely still be the easiest and quickest route even with one lane closed.
