Road Closure

Bethel / Lincoln / Mitchell Road Closure and Detour to Commence Monday July 8th.

Road closures and detours in place at intersections until further notice for scheduled roadwork.

 PORT ORCHARD, WA – The intersection of Bethel Avenue & Lincoln Avenue and the intersection of Lincoln Avenue & Mitchell Road will all be closed until further notice effective July 8, 2024.

The closures and roadwork are due to an ongoing project to construct roundabouts at the aforementioned intersections. These roundabouts are projected to improve traffic safety, reduce collisions, and improve the flow of traffic in the busy corridor.

Update: 7/2/2024

Road closure and detour to commence in the early morning on Monday July 8th.    Intersection will be closed until further notice.   Please use detour.

Bethel Lincoln roundabout detour

The week of May 27, 2024,  work began on the roundabout that is being constructed at the intersection of Mitchell Rd & Lincoln Ave.

Improvements to the intersections along Bethel form Mitchell to Lincoln are being phased.   Phase 1 constructs a RAB at the Lincoln Mitchel Intersection.  Phase 2 completes improvements at Bethel/ Lincoln/ Lundberg intersection and the removal of the Bethel Mitchell ‘Y”.   Work is being phased to reduce traffic impacts including SKSD transit operations

In preparation for this work, Puget Sound Energy will be mobilizing and starting traffic control at the intersection while PSE undergrounds power and communications in advance of the roundabout construction.

During this time Lincoln Ave  between Bethel Rd and Mitchell Rd will be closed.   The City’s contractor will start on the roundabout construction after school is out of session at SKHS, as early as June 17th.  There will be a detour in effect starting in late June with the goal of having the road back in service before Labor Day weekend.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we undertake these important infrastructure improvements to our city.

Please contact the public works department at 360.876.4991 or publicworks@portorchardwa.gov with any questions and/or submit written comments.
