Point Brown Pedestrian Crossing Survey and Project Information
Ocean Shores, WA – April 27, 2021 – The City of Ocean Shores has been exploring options to construct marked pedestrian crossings along Point Brown Avenue between Shoal Street and the Chance a La Mer roundabout.
The area attracts tourists throughout the year adding vehicular and pedestrian traffic to Point Brown Ave. Without designated crosswalks, people often cross the street where they need to in order to get to their destination. The City is looking to fund at least one pedestrian crossing along Point Brown Avenue to increase the safety for crossing pedestrians and reduce conflicts with vehicular traffic.
Starting April 27, the City is inviting residents, visitors, pedestrians and the traveling public to provide feedback on alternatives that have been considered through an online public engagement tool.
Tuesday, April 27, through Tuesday May 18
Due to the Governor’s Stay Home – Stay Healthy Order issued on March 23, 2020 the project report and engagement tool is available online.
The project report and engagement tools are available on-line:
