Improvements to NE Lincoln Road begin in June

POULSBO — Improvements to NE Lincoln Road will begin in June, the City of Poulsbo announced April 8.

The project area is NE Lincoln Road from Laurie Vei Loop (near Pugh Road) to the roundabout at the intersection of NE Lincoln Road and Noll Road. Construction will begin approximately June 1 and will continue through the end of October, according to the city.

The project includes construction of new sidewalks, bike lanes, shared use path, street lighting, storm drainage improvements, and replacement sewer and water lines, as well as complete repaving and striping of the road.

This project will complete the Lincoln Road improvements begun in the mid-1990s.

Residents should be prepared for construction impacts. Construction hours on this project will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. Lincoln Road will be restricted to alternating one-way traffic for most of the construction period once road construction begins.  Impacts and some delays can be expected beginning May 1, as utility companies work to move utilities in advance of road construction.

Keeping traffic moving as best as possible will be a priority, according to the city, but significant delays can be expected throughout the construction period.  Information signs will be going up on Lincoln Road within the next two weeks to give drivers advance notice of the impending construction.

City Engineer Andrzej Kasiniak said the project will cost $3.4 million — $2.2 million from a Federal Highway Administration grant, $800,000 from a Transportation Improvement Board grant, and the rest from the city’s sewer, water and street funds.
