The Olympic Discovery Trail winds its way through 6 miles of the Port Angeles shoreline and Marine Bluff Area, and the City of Port Angeles owns or operates over 13 miles of trail between the Morse Creek trestle and the Elwha River pedestrian and bicycle bridge. In 2009 the City of Port Angeles partnered with the Peninsula Trails Coalition, Clallam County, and the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe and the assistance of funding from the Non-motorized and Off-Road Vehicle Activities (NOVA) Program from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) to draft a Plan to complete the section of trail between the Elwha River and the intersection of Hill Street and Marine Drive.
By 2012, with the assistance of a considerable amount of volunteer effort, this plan had been realized through several phases from the Elwha to the intersection of 10th Street and Milwaukee Boulevard.
A public meeting will be held on October 11th to showcase the 30% design documents for the entire project.
The Race Street is an important gateway for the City of Port Angeles, and one our the City's most active arterials. Through grant funding, the City has taken the initiative to develop Race Street into a multi-modal corridor bringing safety and equity for all pedestrians, bicyclists,vehicles and transit users.
The Corridor begins at Front Street and ends at the intersection of Race, Mount Angeles, and Hurricane Ridge Roads, and design has been split into six sections to address the changing landscape, existing conditions, and current uses along the roadway.
