The 10th Street Improvement projects were the #1 priorities for use of the TBD funds, and were accelerated with the recent availability of the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant funding. These projects have been listed on the Capital Facility Plan since the 1990’s while awaiting adequate funding, now made available by the TBD sales tax funds.

Project Background

This grant was accepted by City Council on February 6, 2018. This is a high priority project in the City’s 2019-2024 Transportation Improvement Plan.

The project includes the follow key elements:

  • New asphalt road between I and N Streets
