CARVER LANE AND WEST MAIN STREET INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS
The City of Lebanon has started the initial design phase for improvements at the Carver Lane and West Main Street intersection.
This project includes widening of the roadway on Carver Lane from West Main Street to the railroad crossing, drainage improvements, ADA compliant sidewalks, a new crosswalk, and a new traffic signal at the intersection.
“With the support of Mayor Bernie Ash and the City Council, this project will optimize our transportation system by improving safety, increasing capacity, and easing congestion along a strategic corridor,” said Kristen Rice, City of Lebanon Transportation and Traffic Engineer. “It is exciting to see the Carver Lane project moving forward to provide a much needed infrastructure improvement in a high growth area of our City,” she said.
This project was initiated to improve safety and overall operations at the intersection of Carver Lane and West Main Street as traffic volumes continue to increase with the City’s growth. Once completed, these improvements will enhance the safety of residents and their vehicles and reduce delays at the intersection. Additionally, the project will improve connectivity and accessibility for pedestrians by providing sidewalks and a pedestrian crossing at the new traffic signal.
This project is expected to be funded by the Carver Lane Impact Fee and Infrastructure Impact Fees with a design budget of $177,145. In 2017, the Mayor and City Council approved a measure to increase permit fees for development on Carver Lane. These fees were set aside to sustain growth in the area with the addition of several residential developments.
“I would like to thank our City Council, Public Services Commissioner Jeff Baines, and Engineering Director Regina Santana for the foresight of planning for the future and making the project a priority of the City,” said Mayor Bernie Ash. “We initiated this strategic plan because with the momentum of development improvements would be needed in the near future. I am very excited about these improvements as they will advance the well-being of our community,” he said.
The City of Lebanon has acquired the consulting services of The Corradino Group for the engineering design portion of the improvements. The design of this project began in the fall of 2019. The estimated time of completion is late 2022.
