Lincoln Street (US 101) is a key transportation route through Port Angeles and one of the City’s most active arterials. This project provided several multimodal pedestrian and bike improvements to improve safety through the downtown core. There were many uncontrolled driveways near the commercial core, including a busy Safeway grocery store and gas station, coupled with busy transit stops, and poorly marked pedestrian crossings at busy one-way stop-controlled intersections. Additionally, underutilized on-street parking led to increased travel speeds.
Parametrix assisted the City to secure grant funding for the improvements which involve ADA-accessible pedestrian curb ramps, upgraded pedestrian crossings with RRFBs, access management, buffered bike lanes, transit stops, and a new signal at the intersection of 3rd Street and Lincoln. Parametrix facilitated public involvement, completed final design, and provided construction management services.
