Why is WSDOT
studying US 101 in the Aberdeen vicinity?
WSDOT is studying US 101 and segments of US 12 and SR 109 in the cities of Aberdeen, Hoquiam and Cosmopolis. These highways are part of the primary route from the Puget Sound region to the Washington Coast. US 101 provides the most direct route for travelers and freight, as well as to recreational and scenic opportunities on the Washington Coast. US 12 and US 101 intersect in Aberdeen and serve as major city streets. Congestion on these principal arterials negatively affects the transport of goods. The traveling public and residents of these cities and the surrounding area are also affected by congestion issues.
WSDOT is conducting the project in partnership with the Grays Harbor Council of Governments.
The End Result
The primary goal of the project is to develop a comprehensive, prioritized list of recommended improvements -including current project costs - for Grays Harbor County legislators.
The intent of the project is to identify opportunities to reduce congestion on state highways in the vicinity of the cities of Aberdeen, Hoquiam and Cosmopolis.
What is the project timeline?
The project began in June 2006 with pre-stakeholder meetings. This was a very short-term project scheduled to provide a prioritized list of regionally significant projects to legislators for the 2006-2007 Legislative session.
Project signage will reflect the cost of construction engineering, project bid award and sales tax.
This project is funded through the following source:
- 2005 Legislative Session - $500,000
- Total Funding Available From All Sources - $500,000
