Clallam: Officials discuss bridge grant for creek restoration
PORT ANGELES -- Construction of a U.S. Highway 101 bridge across the restored Jimmycomelately Creek channel in Blyn should begin in November, a county official said Monday.
``We have a target of having the project completed by Memorial Day of 2004,'' said Pat Crain, Clallam County planning biologist who is supervising the project for the county's Department of Community Development.
``It's a pretty big project, and a number of things could come up, but hopefully it will begin in November.''
Crain updated the county commissioners at their Monday work session after the federal Interagency for Outdoor Recreation requested that the county add $750,000 in grant dollars to the amount already funded.
The agency oversees the state's Salmon Recovery Fund program, This brings the total cost of the creek project to $1.34 million.
The commissioners at their action meeting Aug. 12 are expected to formally approve the requested Salmon Recovery Fund grant amendment.
