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 2 construction will likely begin in fall 2014. Phase 2 will have a shorter duration, but the exact timeline is not known as this time. Phase 2 will entail the remainder of Lonnbladh Road up to Capital Circle NE.
Once entirely complete, Lonnbladh Road residents will have pedestrian access to Capital Circle NE.
