Ninth Street sidewalk construction begins

PORT TOWNSEND — A three-week sidewalk project has started along Ninth Street on Castle Hill.

Nordland Construction Northwest began staging equipment and clearing the area on Ninth Street from Grant to Hancock streets.

Project hours

Working hours are scheduled from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

The city of Port Townsend received a $250,000 grant to pay for the project through the Transportation Improvement Board for Complete Streets. It will fund retrofits to provide access to the street for bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and public transportation riders, according to a news release.

Bid solicitations were sent out July 12. A pre-construction meeting was held Tuesday.

Washington State Department of Agriculture entomologist Chris Looney looks at two of the dozens of Asian giant hornets he vacuumed from a nest in a nearby tree Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020, in Blaine, Wash. Scientists in Washington state discovered the first nest earlier in the week of so-called murder hornets in the United States and plan to wipe it out Saturday to protect native honeybees, officials said. Workers with the state Agriculture Department spent weeks searching, trapping and using dental floss to tie tracking devices to Asian giant hornets, which can deliver painful stings to people and spit venom but are the biggest threat to honeybees that farmers depend on to pollinate crops.
