Third Avenue Reopened and Improved

As of Weds, Oct. 26th, Third Avenue is open to vehicles and pedestrians. Thanks to a grant from the Department of Ecology, the City was able to install new utilities, sidewalks and pervious pavement along the edges of the roadway to intercept stormwater runoff from the road and sidewalks. A sand filter was installed below the pavement to treat the stormwater. This new pavement technology is a great example of low impact development, which helps keep toxins from our streets from entering our water supply.
