City of Hoquiam receives funding for street projects
The City of Hoquiam has received two grants, totaling $469,000, from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board to address street and sidewalk improvements in accordance with their Hometown Hoquiam Plan.
The grant money will be used to repave N Street between Emerson and 5th. As part of our match, the City will install new ADA ramps on the intersections.
According to the City, this new grant money, along with the $1,000,000 in money that the city is currently using to replace the crumbling sidewalks on K Street will “go a long way to improving safety and walkability in Hoquiam.”
Mayor Jack Durney said, “I am very proud of the accomplishments of our staff to develop successful grant applications that are beneficial to our community. Street and sidewalk improvements were a high priority in our several Hometown Hoquiam meetings a number of years ago.”
In addition, with the new TIB funding for Gable Park, the City will complete a $500,000 project to install walkways, drainage and access with only $5,000 of city investment.
