HOQUIAM, Wash – The City of Hoquiam has received two grants totaling $469,000 from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board to address street and sidewalk improvements in accordance with our Hometown Hoquiam Plan.

The grant money will be used to repave the dilapidated pavement on N Street between Emerson and 5th. As part of our match, the City will install new ADA ramps on those N Street intersections.

This new grant money along with the $1,000,000 in grant money that the city is currently using to replace the crumbling sidewalks on K Street as well as our unique and successful neighborhood sidewalk program go a long way to improving safety and walk-ability in  Hoquiam. Read more
