Project Overview

Figure 1. Project AreaThe 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.

This 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.
