[ARCHIVED] We want your input for improving safety on Lincoln Street

Special Meeting Notice

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 beginning the preliminary design phase for the Lincoln Street Safety Project (between 1st Street and 8th Street).  This will focus on improved traffic and pedestrian safety, including, but not limited to:

• Restricting left turns on Lincoln Street and reducing driveway widths

• Buffered or sharrow bike lanes, and reduced speed limits

• Modifying the bus stop near Safeway to incorporate bike and pedestrian safety

• Traffic signal at 3rd and Lincoln Street

• Flashing pedestrian crosswalk signs at 4th and Lincoln

• ADA accessible pedestrian curb ramps with curb extensions, and reduced crosswalk lengths

• Reduce on street parking

Everyone is invited to an open house meeting on Wednesday, October 10th, from 4pm to 6pm in the Vern Burton Meeting Room.  Join the open house to learn more about the preliminary concepts under consideration and give your feedback on the future of the project.  This is an open-house style meeting where you’re invited to talk with city staff and the project team about the design alternatives.  

Improvements on this corridor are especially important since over 100 pedestrians per hour walk along or cross Lincoln Street between 3rd and 4th Street.  It is also the location of two serious or fatal pedestrian injury collisions between 2012 and 2016.  

The City is actively seeking funding to advance this project from the current planning stage into the design and construction stage.  

A survey will be provided at the meeting,

If you are unable to attend either meeting, a survey is available for your input, please visit:

We hope to see you there,

Jonathan Boehme, Civil Engineer
