Gig Harbor completes $3M road improvement project

The City of Gig Harbor will celebrate the completion of the 56th Street/Point Fosdick Road Improvement Project during a ribbon-cutting ceremony next month.

Work on the $3 million dollar project included the construction of a new roadway complete with storm drainage, sidewalks, and street lighting along with the replacement of the city’s sewer system. The work began last May and construction was completed six months ahead of schedule and $300,000 under budget, according to City of Gig Harbor officials. The project was paid for using a Washington State Transportation Improvement Board grant, city traffic impact fees, and developer contributions. This project was one of the original improvement projects identified from the City of Gig Harbor’s Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program schedule dating back to 1999.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Thurs., March 7 at 10 :30 a.m. at 3190 56th Street.
