The Lonnbladh Road Improvement Project involves installing sidewalks along both sides of Lonnbladh Road from Olson Road to Capital Circle NE and constructing a storm water system to lessen flooding near Greer Road. We believe that this project will improve pedestrian safety, create greater consistency and will serve as an overall enhancement to the community.
Given extensive work planned, the Lonnbladh Road Improvement Project has been broken up into two phases.
Phase 1 construction began February 25, 2013 and entails the stretch of roadway from Laurelwood Lane to Olson Road, about 0.39 miles. Phase 1 construction is expected to be completed by late January 2014, weather permitting. Because construction will take place on both sides of the roadway, full road closures will be necessary. Detours will be clearly signed to route traffic around the construction zone using Olson Road, Centerville Road, Welaunee Road and Capital Circle NE. Throughout Phase 1 construction, Eddie Road and Pennlyn Road will remain open; however, these two roads will be to local traffic only.
Phase 2 construction will likely begin sometime after Phase 1 is complete. Phase 2 will have a shorter duration, but the exact timeline is not known as this time. Phase 2 will entail the remainder of Loonbladh Road up to Capital Circle NE.
Once entirely complete, Lonnbladh Road residents will have pedestrian access to Capital Circle NE.
