The City’s design consultant, HDR, has completed the design. The City solicited for bids in August, however the bids submitted exceeded the project’s budget and all bids were rejected. The City is currently repackaging the project and re-advertising this winter. Construction is planned to begin in the spring of 2018.
The City was awarded a $1,675,490 federal highway safety grant to improve the safety of stretches of West Belfair Valley Road and Tracyton Beach Road. The improvements will include storm drainage improvements, high friction surface treatment, and guardrail. The high friction surface treatment will be applied to curved sections of Tracyton Beach and West Belfair Valley Roads. The guardrail will be installed along the City owned sections of Tracyton Beach Road and at certain locations along West Belfair Valley Road.
