Project Overview

The Homer Lake Street project will rehabilitate Lake Street between the Sterling Highway and Pioneer Avenue/East End Road. The project is intended to extend the life of the roadway, improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and improve drainage.

Figure 1. Project AreaThis phase of the project includes right-of-way appraisal and acquisition. Previous work on the project includes geotechnical exploration, ground survey, and environmental documentation. Design documents are 75% complete. The project will:

  • Rehabilitate 2,500 feet of pavement;
  • Widen the road to the west and add bike lanes to both sides of the road;
  • Reconstruct curb/gutter and sidewalk on the east side of the road;
  • Re-establish existing ditches;
  • Improve drainage by replacing failing culverts;
  • Acquire right-of-way interests as needed; and
  • Relocate utilities as needed.

The project will rehabilitate a crucial link in Homer's road network. The project team will coordinate with Homer drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians and individual property owners through the remaining work on the project.
