BEND, Ore. (AP) - Construction on Oregon State University’s four-year campus in Bend is set to start before July 4.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1K0rf6p) the 10-acre campus has been delayed by blocked legal challenges from opponents who content the area is too crowded to accommodate a university.

OSU-Cascades vice president Becky Johnson says further court challenges would only result in small changes like a slightly different parking plan, which has been a source of contention.

Johnson says parking would be a problem anywhere anew campus is built. OSU is allocating $900,000 to the area’s public transportation service, Cascades East Transit.

Campus capacity will be less than 2,000 students. The purchase of nearby land would allow an expansion and add capacity for 5,000 more to enroll.
