Jefferson County Public Works Road Crew is busy preparing Oak Bay Road and Paradise Bay Road in Port Ludlow for a new chip/fog seal surface. This will extend the life and serviceability of the existing road. Chip Seal will be applied on August 4 and 5 and a Fog Seal will follow the week of August 9. During the month of August, please watch out for the road crew and equipment and slow down for them. End of August or early September, new paint striping and thermoplastic stop and crosswalk bars will be applied by a contractor. The new striping plan responds to the Port Ludlow Village Traffic Engineering Study of June 2020. The traffic consultant identified the need to rechannelize lanes at the intersection of Oak Bay/Paradise Bay/Osprey Ridge to fit safer speeds, a walking community and less traffic infractions. The new striping plan (below) removes the left-turn pocket and narrows the road width to make turning movements and pedestrian access visible and straightforward. New crosswalks will be striped on all four legs of the intersection. The full package of Port Ludlow Village maintenance work should be finished by Labor Day.
