Council looks at traffic safety bits
The installation of traffic signals at the corner of Boblett
and S.R. 542 is scheduled for completion on September 6.
Steve Banham of Blaine public works department said it had
been hoped to finish the project before school started but
delays at the state level made that timing impossible. In
other road department news, the 2002 chipsealing program
has been completed and, according to Banham, went very well.
He credited the road department staff and Larry Freeman
Construction for the smoothness of the job. Banham advised
council that the 6th Street project was ahead of schedule.
Following feedback from neighborhood meetings, council agreed to ask the state department of highways to install a four way stop at the corner of Peace Portal Drive and Bell Road.
Council unanimously approved the first and second reading of the Drayton Hillside phase II development project. Requiring shoreline and plat approvals, the Trillium project involves 20 single-family homes and four multi-family homes. Council member Bruce Wolf asked that the old Drayton Harbor Road trail be linked to the existing trail on Drayton Harbor Road by constructing a separate pathway on roads within the project and installing signage and a bridge over a roadside culvert. City staff and Trillium representative Bob Libolt agreed to make the necessary changes.
