As the Abbot-Beaver intersection project nears completion, the full-depth grinding and paving of all roads within the project area will take place over several days: May 30-31 and June 3, 4, 5. All dates are weather permitting.

On these dates drivers can expect traffic delays up to 20 minutes and/or complete closures while the roads are prepped for final paving.

Drivers can avoid delays and closures in the construction zone altogether by using alternate routes as well as Cottonwood Road to enter/exit Sunriver on the following dates.


- Abbot Drive from the South Century waterfall circle to the Sunriver monument.

- Ponderosa Road from Café Sintra’s east driveway to the pathway crossing to the east.

- Beaver Drive from Starbucks to the entry driveway of Freemont Crossing.

JUNE 1-2:

Roads will be open but under construction conditions and unfinished surfaces.


- Abbot Drive between Circle 1 and Sunriver entry waterfall.

Those trying to enter Sunriver off South Century Drive will be detoured into Sunriver via Sunriver’s emergency access gate on Spring River Road near Harper Bridge and onto Meadow Road. Please use Cottonwood Road when feasible.


- Beaver Drive between new Beaver circle and entry driveway of Fremont Crossing.

Ponderosa Road emergency access road will be opened to local business traffic and residents along Ponderosa Road. If coming from the west on Abbot Drive, exit Sunriver and return via the waterfall circle to access Ponderosa Road businesses and homes.


- Ponderosa Road between Beaver circle to pathway crossing just east of Café Sintra. Local residents will need to use north Ponderosa Road access off Beaver Drive.


- Minus some finish work, road striping, signage, landscaping, etc

We sincerely thank everyone for their patience during the construction process!

Construction of the Beaver Circle finished about a week ahead of schedule and is now open to traffic. Abbot Drive is now closed between the new Abbot-Beaver intersection circle and Circle 1 for construction of a pathway tunnel and a new turn lane on Abbot Drive. Weather and schedule permitting, Abbot Drive will be closed through May.

Detours signs will direct traffic to access the south end of Sunriver, including the Resort and Abbot House Condos:

• To reach Abbot House condos, take Beaver Drive to Theater Drive and continue on Abbot Drive off Circle 2.

• To reach the Resort and south end of Sunriver follow this same route and continue to Circle 1.

The temporary access road in front of Café Sintra to Ponderosa Road is again closed. This road will eventually be gated and accessible only for an emergency or area work that may require a road closure.

Updated: Mar 14, 2019

Due to heavy snowfall at the end of February into the beginning of March, the spring phase 2 of the Abbot/Beaver Circles project has been delayed. Completion of the project is now projected for mid-June.

As a reminder, the next phase of construction will involve closures of Abbot and Beaver drives. In preparation of closures please review the map for suggested detours.

1. Closure of Beaver Drive between Abbot Drive and Sunriver Realty for approximately six weeks.. Access to Sunriver Realty, Starbucks, Marcello’s and Café Sintra will be via Abbot Drive out of Sunriver, go around the main entry waterfall circle and return on Abbot Drive to the temporary Ponderosa Road access spur. To exit those businesses, drivers will use the same spur to Abbot Drive, which will be a right turn only. Abbot Drive tunnel construction will commence after the Beaver Circle completion.
