LK Wood Median Work

July 19, 2019

Project work has begun to improve the northbound lane and pedestrian crossing at the LK Wood and Sunset intersection. The improvements will include a left-hand turn pocket in addition to the existing northbound lane. This will allow two lanes of traffic for queuing vehicles as they cross the LK Wood and Sunset intersection in turn helping to alleviate vehicle backup during peak times.

The project will also introduce raised concrete islands providing areas of refuge for pedestrians that are currently only delineated by road markings. This project was a collaboration between the City of Arcata, Cal-Trans, and Humboldt State University. Project drawings can be located under the "minor capital projects" section of the Capital Projects website located here:
