Port Angeles Gateway construction work slated to begin next month

PORT ANGELES – The chain-link fences will go up next month around the future site of the Port Angeles International Gateway Transportation Center.

City officials outlined a tentative plan for dealing with parking – which would make a portion of Cherry Street one way – during the 18-month project at a meeting at City Hall Wednesday.

“This is the first of a number of meetings and the start of a dialogue,” City Public Works Director Glenn Cutler told about two dozen downtown business owners.

Kevin Thompson, Port Angeles Downtown Association president, liked what he heard.

“I want to commend the city because this is the best plan I’ve heard,” he said after the meeting.

“I’m really liking it and now I’m going to promote it.”

Thompson was displeased by the meeting’s low turnout though, since this project will affect downtown merchants.

The Gateway Center is intended to provide a more attractive entrance to the city’s downtown.

The $13.8 million project is slated for an area roughly bounded by Front Street and Railroad Avenue at Lincoln Street.
