Sidewalk work underway in Elmer City


Elmer City residents will soon be able to walk to the post office on new sidewalks.

They will also be able to cross SR-155 on a new lighted crosswalk.

It’s all part of a Washington State Transportation Improvement Board grant that the town got.

The project is well underway, with DWK Fowler Construction doing the work.

Public works director Jimmer Tillman has worked on the grant for the past two years.

It is the second major grant that Elmer City has received through the TIB grant system.

The earlier one was for 3rd Street. It connected the Elmer City Access Road along the river to SR-155.

Tillman said that the major part of the project is due to be completed by mid-May, except for the lights for the crosswalk that are on backorder.

The project, including the engineer’s work, was for $240,000. Construction cost is about $185,000, Tillman said.

The sidewalk system extends to the town’s park. The project includes curbs and handicap-accessible sidewalk work.
