The Lincoln City City Council, acting as the town’s Urban Renewal Agency, authorized Public Works Director Lila Bradley to launch a couple of pedestrian projects along Lincoln City’s main drag – Highway 101.

The first project is installing a high tech, low maintenance pedestrian actuated bright and flashing LED signal light at 101 and North 33rd, at the existing crosswalk that connects to Starbucks. The new system, which will run just over $13,500, will make a troublesome crosswalk for pedestrians a bit more safe in that the activated bright flashing lights will make it clear that pedestrians are entering the crosswalk. Bradley reported to the council “Even though every effort has been made to enhance pedestrian safety, including location, lighting, signage, island refuge and reflectors, pedestrians at this crosswalk are experiencing ‘issues’ due to unaware drivers.” She said the new crosswalk light activation system should go a long way toward making the crosswalk more pedestrian safe if not friendly.

The council also approved building new sidewalks from the frontage of Orsborn Power Saw and the Bonita Plaza complex to SE 19th Street. Bradley said public works would like to proceed with the project, which also includes moving the LINC Bus Stop to a safer locations and installing a bus shelter. The council approve the projects which weigh in at just under $100,000 for design and construction. Watch for construction crews in the area.
