Highway 20 is open through Sisters, and folks downtown are in the mood for celebrating.
The Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Sisters, Oregon Department of Transportation and Knife River will "cut the ribbon" to celebrate the opening of Cascade Avenue through downtown Sisters at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 23, at Barclay Park .
The celebration of the completion of the roadwork portion of the major renovation project will continue through the day.
Local shops will be open until 7 p.m. that evening during the final Stroll Sisters event of this spring.
The highway opened through Sisters on Friday, May 16. Work on landscaping and other streetscape elements will continue throughout the summer.
"This project has gone smooth and fast," said Sisters Chamber Executive Director Erin Borla. "We have developed great relationships with the staff at Knife River and the team at Oregon Department of Transportation working on this project. We want to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication to this project and getting in and out of Sisters before the busy summer season."
