7/15/2021 - Construction is scheduled to begin the week of July 26th.
The City of Port Angeles is constructing safety improvements for the Lincoln Street (US 101) corridor from 1st Street to 8th Street.
The Lincoln Street corridor is a key transportation route for the City of Port Angeles, and one of the City’s most active arterials. The City is entering in the final phase for the Lincoln Street Safety Project. The focus of this project is to improve traffic and pedestrian safety.
Thank you for the valuable comments and feedback that were received from property owners, business owners, and interested parties.
The City previously held an outreach event for the community to learn more about the project. The meeting was an open house style forum where residents, businesses, and interested stakeholders were invited to talk with city staff and the project team about design alternatives, as well as share their thoughts and provide feedback on the project. Comments received from this outreach event have been incorporated into the current design where feasible.
Design was completed in Spring 2021.
Construction is scheduled to start the week of July 19, 2021.
Construction completion is anticipated by end of 2021.
The City of Port Angeles received a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety grant from WSDOT (Washington State Department of Transportation) to address the safety issues along Lincoln Street.
