BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The Bellingham City Council held a public hearing this week to gather input on its plan for transportation improvements over the next six years.
Bellingham Transportation Planner Chris Comeau says projects on the draft plan include changing all of the old "don't walk" signals to newer countdown signals, a roundabout where Wharf Street meets State Street, repairs to the Chestnut and Bay Street bridge, and several changes to James Street Road including rebuilding the intersection at Bakerview Road.
The plan prioritizes future transportation projects in the city and is required to qualify for funding from state and federal agencies.
The council will hold a worksession on the transportation improvement program at its June 4 meeting.
They have to submit the plan to the state by July 1.
