• Road Construction Ahead

    The City of Sisters will soon begin work on the S. Cedar St. to S. Locust St. Alley Waterline Replacement Project. This project will impact the alleys both north and south of E. Jefferson Avenue, connecting S. Cedar with S. Locust streets. The City’s contractor, Robinson & Owen Heavy Construction, anticipates a start date of April 1, possibly sooner, and the work will take 35-45 days. Work will take place during business hours and pedestrian and vehicle access through the alleys will be unavailable on weekdays for the duration of the project. If you have children and live on either side of the alleys, please direct them to stay away from the construction zone and equipment. Please park on the frontage or side streets during this project. Contact Paul Bertagna if you have questions at pbertagna@ci.sisters.or.us or 541-323-5212.
