College Street meeting set

January 18th, 2010 by Ken

The City of Lacey has been planning improvements and changes to College Street, to carry the increased traffic.

Plans call for widening College Street to five lanes to encompass a center turn lane, and the construction of two additional roundabouts.  All left turns on College Street will be eliminated except at designated locations.

The city has already started the project by creating a concrete barrier to stop people from turning onto or off of 14th Avenue.   This action has caused several residents living on 14th to complain.

Newly elected councilmember Ron Lawson has taken the issue before the city.   Although the city held several public meetings about College Street before embarking on the plan, it has agreed to hold another hearing to address the concerns of 14th Avenue residents.

That meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 20 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Lacey City Hall Council Chambers.
