Work to begin on Eagle Harbor Drive

Work is expected to start next week on improvements to Eagle Harbor Drive.

Roughly one mile, running north from McDonald Avenue to the shoreline segment of the road, will soon be safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers.

Known as the Eagle Harbor Drive Phase II Non-Motorized Improvements project, it has been on the city’s project list for two decades. The city’s contractor will widen shoulders and create a 5-foot-wide bike lane northbound. On the southbound, uphill stretch of the road, the 5-foot-wide bike lane will be separated from traffic by a vegetation buffer.

In June 2020, the City Council authorized the Public Works Department to develop a design for the project after staff secured $700,000 from a federal grant, which will be paired with approximately 13% of city funds.

Total cost is $1.08 million. Construction will take approximately three to four months.
