More downtown street closures loom for Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Driving downtown over the next few weeks may take a road map and a lot of patience.

The Port Angeles downtown sidewalk and water main project is moving on to new areas, while a new phase of the Port Angeles International Gateway Transportation Center project will include pouring concrete and installing storm water lines.

Multiple projects, all being done at the same time, will require several lane closures on downtown streets, said city spokeswoman Teresa Pierce.

Lincoln and Laurel streets won’t be closed at the same time.

The street closure in front of the MV Coho ferry landing is scheduled during the boat’s annual two-week maintenance shutdown, which will be from Jan. 28 to Feb. 10.

“There’s a lot going on,” Pierce said.

“There’s a little bit of overlapping, but there also was some very careful planning to coordinate with the MV Coho drydocking,” she added.
