Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The state of Oregon and the City of Bend have implemented a few new laws and policies in the new year, from road kill to the downtown parking scene – and now speed limits.

You don't want to be the one who misses these updates and ends up with a ticket.

    Here are the sections of road getting different speed limits:



  • O.B Riley Rd. between Hardy Rd. and Cooley Rd. - 45mph to 40mph.
  • Boyd Acres Road from Butler Market Rd. to Morningstar Dr. - 40mph to 35mph.
  • American Lane from Reed Market Rd. to Brosterhous Rd. - not posted to 35mph.

    To make sure you don't miss these updates, the new signs will have orange flags on top for the first few weeks to get your attention.

    These new speed limits are based off of requests by the community and traffic studies done by the Department of Transportation. With it being winter, it's especially important to pay attention to these changes and road conditions.
