Lincoln Street Paving Project

Project Description: 

CBS is re-paving Lincoln Street from City Hall to the traffic light this winter. The project is being scheduled from October 2018 through April 2019 to minimize impacts to downtown businesses. As required with re-paving projects, CBS will also reconstruct crosswalk curb ramps as needed so that they comply with Americans With Disabilities Act standards. This will re-shape the Lincoln Street intersections with Katilan, Barracks and American Streets. Intersection drawings will be provided in the “documents” links below when they are ready. The project will also replace corroded/failing storm water pipes and structures, and construct a new water main from Lincoln to Seward, via Cathedral Way.



The Public Works Department is hosting a project open house on Wednesday, May 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Chum Room at Harrigan Centennial Hall.
