Lauridsen Blvd Overlay Project

E. Lauridsen Boulevard is a key transportation route for the City of Port Angeles and one of the City’s most active arterials.  The City has planned for and scheduled an upgrade project for later this summer, 2019. The overall project is primarily geared towards pavement preservation, however, traffic and pedestrian safety and ADA accessibility improvements will also be implemented. The project area consists of E. Lauridsen Blvd. between Lincoln St. and Lauridsen Court. Currently, the project is in the final stages of design.  Thank you for your input provided at a open house on May 1st and through an online survey.  We are using this information to guide the final design.  

Some of the improvements being considered are:

  • Traffic calming measures such as a lane shift and curb bump-outs
  • Dedicated turn lanes at Peabody Street
  • Flashing pedestrian crosswalk beacons and refuge islands at Chase and Peabody Streets
