April 19, 2018

DAYTON—During last week’s meeting of the Port of Columbia Commissioners, Port Manager Jennie Dickinson reported that she has met with Adam Schmidtgall, Principal Engineer for Anderson Perry & Associates, to discuss an engineering design application for a $3.5 million bicycle trail between Dayton and Waitsburg.

Dickinson said an application for funding of the design will be submitted to the Washington State Dept. of Transportation, Local Programs, in early May.

“We’re excited to get started on seeking funding for the Dayton to Waitsburg bike trail. It has the potential to improve health and well-being of the citizens of the region, as well as improve economic vitality through enhanced recreation opportunities,” said Dickinson.

Dickinson said the long-term plan is to apply for construction grants in 2020, and for actual construction to take place beginning in 2021.
