Work to install sidewalks on section of Olson Drive Northwest starts April 28

Work on a project to install sidewalks on a section of Olson Drive Northwest will start April 28. The work is expected to be completed in late June.

The 385-foot section is located to the west of the road’s intersection with Key Peninsula Highway Northwest near Key Center. Crews will also widen the road to accommodate new paved shoulders, and add curbs, gutters and storm drainage facilities. 

Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The road may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours.

About the work
Utility relocation work is expected to be completed April 27.

Once the construction work starts, crews will install temporary erosion control measures and clear the site. Crews will widen the road and install storm drainage facilities through late May. From late May to late June, crews will install curbs, gutters and sidewalks. The road will be paved in late June.

The project’s contractor is Rodarte Construction. The construction cost is approximately $337,000 and is funded with County Road Funds and Washington State County Road Administration Board Rural Arterial Program Funds.
