Road projects make funding list

July 8th, 2010 by Ken

Members of the Lacey City Council, Thursday night, approved the city’s new Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) which gives some insight into the city’s transportation priorities.

Top on the list of nearly 30 projects, is improvement to Carpenter Road at a cost of $13.4 million.   Improvement to Hogum Bay Road is second with a cost of $12.3 million.

The city is required to prepare an annual TIP and submit it to the state and the Thurston Regional Planning Council prior to July 31 of each year.  In order for a city transportation project to get federal, state or regional money, the project must be on the city’s Six-Year Street Plan.

Depending on circumstances, only a handful of city projects get funded, usually no more than four or five.

A new roundabout at College Street and 22nd Avenue is listed at number 7 on the list.  The estimated cost is $2.5 million.
