Jefferson County Public Works was awarded a Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Safe Routes to Schools Program grant for pedestrian and bicycle improvements on SR 116 and Cedar Avenue near the Jefferson County Library and the Chimacum Creek Primary School. The objective of the WSDOT program is to improve the transportation system to enhance safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists.
This project will provide the Hadlock community, school students, and library patrons with sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, and bicycle lanes along a segment of Cedar Avenue, a multi-use path to Chimacum Creek Primary School, a sidewalk to the Jefferson County Library, and pedestrian activated crosswalk beacons on SR 116 near the entrance to the Chimacum Creek Primary School. This project is currently in the design phase; construction is tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2021.
Construction of approximately 2,240 feet of concrete sidewalk, curb, and gutter, and ADA ramps along the westerly side of Cedar Avenue, from the Jefferson County Library entrance to Hayden Street. This segment of the project will also include installation of bicycle lanes, crosswalks, illumination, stormwater facilities, a Jefferson Transit bus pullout, removal of sight distance conflicts, and relocation of utilities.
