Pendleton Project Progressing

Pendleton City Council will consider options for the reconstruction of Northwest Despain Avenue, between North Main Street and Northwest Seventh Street when they meet on Tuesday, April 4. Officials say that Northwest Despain Avenue is an older street that has deteriorated to the point that it needs a full reconstruction. There are two options, known as Option 1 and Option 2. One calls for repaving the street to a 32-foot span, the other calls for a 36-foot span. Both include ADA accessible curb ramps, bulb-out curbs to slow traffic, and on-street parking.
