Crews from the Roy Houck Construction Company, under contract to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), have begun work on a major U.S. 97 improvement project between Sunriver and the intersection with OR31 south of La Pine.

Initially, motorists can expect to see construction along the west side of U.S. 97 in central La Pine as workers perform a “streetscape” project there, including curbs, planting strips, sidewalks. This work is already under way. Work on the streetscape project will take place during daytime hours, and motorists should be aware that there will be shoulder closures and slow traffic in central La Pine as the streetscape project continues.

Work began overnight on June 17 when workers began a repaving project starting at the U.S. 97 Sunriver interchange, continuing south through La Pine to the intersection with OR31. The grinding and repaving of U.S. 9.7 will take place during overnight hours, from about 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Work on the paving element will end by Sept. 30.

Together, these projects represent a nearly $10 million investment in the highway and improvements in La Pine.
