Port Angeles approves modified transportation list plan

June 19th, 2014 - 5:13am

(PORT ANGELES) The City of Port Angeles passed its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at Tuesday nights City Council session, and this year's list of projects is leaner than in the past.

By law, the State requires that a city have a TIP list that itemizes the city's long-range goals for transportation planning and system development. The list is good for a six year period, and can be updated yearly, by adding or removing potential projects.

In the past, Port Angeles has submitted close to fifty items as part of their TIP list. Experience has taught them that cutting the list down, is a better use of resources. The current list has eighteen items. All but five of those have grant funding available.

The approved list features nearly a million dollars for design work on a third phase to the downtown waterfront improvement project.

The list also includes work on a new retaining wall on Ediz Hook and improvements to the stairs near the downtown fountain.

The city still maintains what is known as a “parking lot” list, which are projects with significant priorities but without secure funding. There are presently 28 projects on that list.
