Port Angeles gets $175,000 sidewalk grant

PORT ANGELES — The city has received a $175,000 state grant to build sidewalks along school walking routes, the City Council was told at its Tuesday night meeting.

The sidewalks will be built on the west side of E Street and north side of 16th Street near Stevens Middle School.

The grant requires $85,000 in matching funds from the city and $50,000 from the Port Angeles School District, said City Public Works Director Glenn Cutler.

The school district’s $50,000 helped ensure the city was one of only two in western Washington to receive one of the Transportation Improvement Board grants, he said.

Cutler said the school district will appoint a staff member to revise the city’s school walking routes to fit the district’s realignment, which was accomplished this school year.
