City of Washougal Seeks Public Comment for S 27th Street Shared Use Path Project

The City of Washougal has applied for a Transportation Alternatives Grant through the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council (RTC) for funds to build the S 27th Street Shared Use Path Project and is seeking public input. The public comment and review period is scheduled through April 21, 2023. The public can submit comments at https://www.rtc.wa.gov/programs/tap/projects.

About the Project

S 27th Street Shared Use Path Project PhotoThe S 27th Street Shared Use Path project will provide a dedicated separated shared use path on S 27th Street.  The proposed project expands the bicycle and pedestrian facility connectivity within Washougal and the region and furthers a safe and cohesive active transportation network.  

Currently there is no existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities connecting eastern Washougal to the Captain William Clark Park and the Dike Trail. These recreational facilities are heavily used by the community year around. This project will close an active transportation gap and provide a safe multi-modal connection.

The existing lack of active transportation facilities introduces challenges for non-motorized travel between the residential areas in eastern Washougal and the recreational areas by the Columbia River.  Adjacent roadways have sidewalks and bicycle facilities. The existing roadway has two lanes and is approximately 32 feet wide with no existing bicycle or pedestrian improvements and narrow shoulders. The existing roadway is the sole roadway which crosses under SR-14 to the Captain William Clark Park from eastern Washougal.  A roundabout on SR 14 at 32nd Avenue is the only other crossing option, but it is a four-lane high-speed, high-volume freeway.

Proposed complete street improvements will create a more equitable environment for users of all abilities. Planned improvements consist of storm-water improvements, paved multi use path on the east side of the road, ADA improvements, and a crosswalk and Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) for safe crossing of Index Street.  Conduit for future fiber optic facilities will also be constructed the entire length of the project.
