City of Forks Planner/Attorney Rod Fleck and City of Forks Public Works Department Director Dave Zellar are scheduled to speak on the city's current road works projects at the Wednesday, Aug. 15 meeting of the West End Business & Professional Association meeting. The WEBPA meetings are held at the state Department of Land and Natural Resources meeting room located on Tillicum Lane.
Federal transportation funding, coming to Forks through the state Department of Transportation (WSDOT), highway funding is paying for the majority of the project, including providing extra funding for the project needed when bids for the job came in higher than an engineering estimate for the project.
City Attorney/Planner Rod Fleck has told the Forks City Council the contractors bidding the job cited the isolated location of Forks and other climatic and logistical issues for the higher than expected bids.
