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. The Lonnbladh Road Improvement project is a high-priority pedestrian safety project, because of its vehicular and pedestrian traffic and its substandard cross-section.
This project, which is ongoing, 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 on Phase 1 began in February 2013, and was completed in February 2014. Review the details on road closures and detours.
Phase 2 of this project, which will likely begin in fall 2014, 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.
