Highway 19 project to continue southward

Posted

The Rhody Drive pedestrian-bike improvement project on Highway 19 has officially become a county roads project.

County commissioners voted Monday on a resolution to turn the proposal into a project.

The plan calls for rebuilding the west shoulder of Highway 19 into a bike lane with an adjoining pedestrian path.

The new project covers the southern segment of roadside improvements on Highway 19 for walkers and bikers.

The Rhody Drive pedestrian-bike improvements will be constructed in the Highway 19 right of way from the Chimacum School campus to the Chimacum Crossroads commercial corridor at the Highway 19/Center Road intersection. 

The improvements will stretch for a bit more than half a mile.

The design and construction of the project is expected to cost $1.4 million.

Engineering costs have been estimated at $165,222, while right of way acquisition is estimated at $37,138.

The design phase is estimated to cost $153,093. The county has been awarded a grant from the Federal Highways Administration’s Transportation Alternatives Program for the design work, with the federal funding covering 86.5 percent of the costs. 

The rest of the design costs will be paid from the Jefferson County Road Fund.

The county’s Public Works Department is seeking a Safe Routes To School grant to pay for the costs of construction.
