Lonnbladh Road is classified as a minor collector with a rural roadway section including no or minimal shoulders and open ditches adjacent to the road. Lonnbladh Road Improvements is a high-priority pedestrian safety project, because of its vehicular and pedestrian traffic and its substandard cross-section.
This project primarily consists of construction of curb and gutter and sidewalks on both sides of the existing roadway, and construction of a stormwater facility and storm drain system with closure of existing ditches.
Phase 1 of this project began at the existing concrete box culvert at the Northeast Ditch near Laurelwood Lane, and continues eastward to Olson Road. Construction began in February 2013, and is expected to be complete by late January 2014. Review the details on road closures and detours.
Phase 2 of this project will extend westward from the Northeast Ditch to Capital Circle Northeast. The design for Phase 2 is currently underway. Right-of-way acquisition for Phase 2 has begun. Phase 2 will have a shorter duration, but the exact timeline is not known as this time.
