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 was completed in February 2014. Because construction took place on both sides of the roadway, full road closures were necessary. Detours were 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 remained open to local traffic only.
Phase two of the Lonnbladh Road Improvement Project began on July 29 and continues the sidewalks from phase one, which includes both sides on Lonnbladh Road from Laurelwood Lane to Capital Circle NE. During construction, which is currently underway, traffic has been reduced to one, westbound lane on Lonnbladh Road from Capital Circle NE to Greer Road. Local access for residents and businesses will be maintained via Centerville Road westbound. Eastbound traffic will be routed around the construction zone. Detours will be clearly marked. Work on phase two will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with occasional night and weekend hours. Weather permitting, the project should be completed by April 2016.
Once entirely complete, Lonnbladh Road residents will have pedestrian access to Capital Circle NE.
