Lake Road Improvements

Construction Update: Lake Road now open to all traffic

A roadway repaving project was completed during the 2022 construction season on Lake Road between Courtly Road and Tahoe Road, and between Woodlane Drive and Pioneer Drive. During the project, portions of Lake Road were converted from a four-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway to increase safety for vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, the intersection of Lake Road and Pioneer Drive was converted into a single-lane roundabout.  

The road opened to all traffic Aug. 17.

As a part of that project, Lake Road between Woodlane Drive and Pioneer Drive was converted from a 4-lane to a 3-lane road.

This conversion increases safety by reducing crashes, increasing pedestrian safety, providing a shoulder, and promoting compliance with posted speed limits.

In 2016, the city conducted the Lake Road Restriping and Safety Improvements Study which determined the traffic volumes are acceptable to accommodate the 3-lane roadway conversion with improved traffic flow and operations.

The project also included repaving of the existing trails along Lake Road to improve the trail surface. 

Pedestrian enhancements constructed with this project include refuge islands at the intersections of Lake Road and Oriole Drive, Camelot Drive, and Stratford Road. Rectangular rapid flashing beacons will remain at the intersection of Lake Road and Wyndham Way.
