Quilcene Complete Streets project – highway survey will happen soon

Eric Kuzma, Project Manager in Jefferson County’s Public Works Dept. has this announcement regarding the Highway 101 safety improvement project recently funded by the Washington State Dept of Transportation, and titled "Quilcene Complete Streets". (See attached project overview.) Note that a Design Workshop will be scheduled this spring for all of us to participate in design of these roadway improvements. To be sure you will receive project updates from Eric, get your name and contact info to his email address, below.


You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in the Quilcene Complete Streets Project.

The goal of the Project is to improve safety for students and residents walking or bicycling along Highway 101 through the Quilcene Center.

This message is to let you know that next week a licensed surveyor will be in Quilcene gathering information about road right-of-way, boundaries, and existing features to create a base map for the project. Creation of an accurate base map will be fundamental to the design charrette/workshop process.

We appreciate your continued input and suggestions!
