Race Street Complete Design and Construction Phase I [TR0209]

Race Street Complete Street Conceptualization

Project Overview

The Race Street Corridor is an important gateway for the City of Port Angeles, and one of the City’s most active arterials. Through grant funding, the City will soon begin constructing the initial phase of a three-phase project to improve this corridor (TR0209 in the City's Capital Facilities and Transportation Improvement Plan), connecting the Olympic Discovery Trail and Port Angeles’ waterfront to the Olympic National Park Visitor Center. Through this project, the City will develop multi-modal connections along Race Street and improve safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles, and transit users.

Phase 1 of this project includes the installation of a shared-use trail, new water line, enhancement of pedestrian safety, and restoration of planting and pavement, will occur between 8th Street and the Olympic National Park Visitor Center. 

Additional segments along Race Street will be added during later phases of the project. Learn more about the Race Street Complete Street Initiative
