Big changes coming for Port Angeles drivers

PORT ANGELES – Major traffic revisions are on the horizon as the Eighth Street bridges replacement project begins.

Preconstruction work underneath the bridges is set to begin June 18 with the links to the city’s west side closing for up to 18 months beginning in mid- to late summer.

Two temporary four-way stops, a new permanent traffic signal, two temporary traffic signals and a right-turn-only sign will be installed during the next few weeks in preparation for closing the bridges later this summer.

The closures also will send more traffic onto such streets as Tumwater Street, Pine Street, Pine Street Extension and Cedar Street as drivers find new ways to move around west of Cherry Street during 18 months of construction.

The Port Angeles City Council awarded the $18.4 million construction contract to Parson RCI Inc. of Sumner, Wash. at its April 4 meeting.
