Cedar Ave & SR 116 Pedestrian/Bike Improvements

A ‘Ribbon Cutting’ for the completed SR 116 and Cedar Avenue Pedestrian-Bike Improvements Project, WSDOT Safe Routes to School Program, will take place on Wednesday, July 6th at the east end of the new Multi-use Path at Cedar Avenue.

Jefferson County Public Works and its contractor, Interwest Construction, Inc. completed construction of the SR 116 and Cedar Ave. Pedestrian/Bike Improvement Project in Port Hadlock at the beginning of June.   The new facilities are now open for the public’s use.

 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.

Project Overview

This project provided the Port Hadlock community, school students, library patrons, and transit riders 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, a relocated transit bus stop, and pedestrian activated crosswalk beacons on SR 116 near the entrance to the Chimacum Creek Primary School.
