Due to unexpected rain and weather conditions last week, construction on North Bend Way from Bendigo Boulevard through Ballarat Avenue will continue for three days longer than originally scheduled. The new completion date is expected to be Friday, Sept. 29.

Signs directing drivers to alternative parking locations are posted in the downtown area. An alternative parking map, construction schedule, design layout, and project FAQ document is available on the North Bend Public Works Department Current Projects Web page, http://northbendwa.gov/index.aspx?NID=161.
