DELAKE UTILITY UNDERGROUNDING MAKING VISIBLE PROGRESS

Noticeable headway is being made along the West side of Highway 101.  The boring of conduit has begun to allow for the undergrounding of the overhead electrical and communication wires.  D River Wayside Park provides an alluring early glimpse of the impressive beauty of Lincoln City.  Removing the overhead powerlines will enhance the appeal of the area and allow for the ocean corridor to be front and center.

The project spans from approximately NW 2nd Drive to SW Ebb Avenue removing overhead wires on both sides of the highway.  The collaborative efforts of the City’s Urban Renewal Staff, The Public Works Department, utility partners, and K & E Construction have been working to bring this beautification project to the final phases.  It is expected to conclude the middle of May, 2018.

For continued updates and more information on the project please visit the DeLake Utility Undergrounding Project Page on the City’s website: http://www.lincolncity.org/index.asp?SEC=%7BC461E506-3624-49F8-A536-EEDB35A2B853%7D&Type=B_BASIC&persistdesign=none

 

Ms. Martin’s 5th Grade Class and Exciting News from the Urban Renewal Agency

Ms. Martin’s 5th Grade Class

Ms. Martin’s 5th grade Class from Taft Elementary in Lincoln City, presented a plea for help at the May 22, 2017, City Council meeting.

The Class had a simple request that would have a big impact – Ban the use of plastic bags in Lincoln City. The students wrote letters and used a PowerPoint presentation to describe the local environmental impacts of plastic bags.

Great job, Class!
