[ARCHIVED] West Fir Street Drive-In Ribbon Cutting

Ribbon Cutting

Please join the City of Sequim for a drive-in ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the West Fir Street Rehabilitation construction project on Thursday, July 9 at 10:30 a.m. Guests are instructed to drive into the Sequim High School Parking off West Fir Street and remain in their vehicles for a brief ceremony that will broadcast to their vehicle radio.  Details will be provided onsite.  The ceremony will be followed by a westbound car parade on Fir Street lead by Mayor William Armacost who will “cut” the ceremonial ribbon with his car bumper.

The West Fir Street Rehabilitation project began in May 2019 and followed the Complete Streets model.  The rehabilitation provides smoothly paved eastbound and westbound lanes for vehicles and bike lanes for cyclists.  Pedestrians improvements include the addition of concrete sidewalks on both sides of the street and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps at intersections.  Other pedestrian improvements include street lighting, landscaping, and crossing enhancements at the Sequim Avenue intersection, the mid-block school crossing east of 2nd Avenue, and at the 5th Avenue intersection. A new traffic signal at the 5th Avenue intersection was installed to improve vehicle operations.

For more information, please contact the City of Sequim Public Works Department at (360) 683-4908.
