Olympic Discovery Trail, South Discovery Bay Segment A – Phase 1 & 2
Jefferson County, WA
May 2017 - September 2017
This project will reach substantial completion mid-September 2017. The contract provided for the new construction of a 10-foot wide asphalt trail adjacent to the east side of US Highway 101, near South Discovery Bay, in Jefferson County. The project was originally divided into Phase 1 and Phase 2; however, the two phases were constructed together as one project. The section to the north included the construction of a soldier pile wall, geosynthetic reinforced slopes, and a MSE retaining wall to create a suitable bench for the trail. The section to the south was constructed on an existing, abandoned railroad grade. Both sections will included removal of vegetation, clearing and grading, roadway (trail) excavation, stormwater improvements, new asphalt pavement, signs, fence and guardrail installation.
