The ODOT PROJECT is a 200 foot running gabion fence between the ODOT (Oregon Department of Transportation) parking lot and Hwy 97 in Bend, Oregon.  The fence is 2 feet wide and transitions from 3 - 6 feet in height.  The bottom is filled with large basalt rock and the top with smaller red cinder.  The rock was donated by ODOT and is what they use to build the roads. There is a red cinder path with lines of poetry referencing roads, journeys, by father and son Oregon poets, William and Kim Stafford.  There is also a basalt seating area and an additional smaller wall at the entry to the DMV/ODOT campus.  Oregon Arts Commission.  Keefer. ($48,000)  2013.
