Carrie Blake’s new roadway underway

Work is underway to realign the entrance to Carrie Blake Park. Crews with Northern Land Development, LLC began leveling the BMX track last week to make room for the park’s new entrance between the Sequim Skate Park and Trinity United Methodist Church.

Eight pickleball courts also are slated for construction in spring 2018 between the new road and skate park.

Crews are working on a contract worth up to $504,000 and a 5-percent contingency to move the entrance, level the spot for future courts and extend a water line. Construction is expected to finish tentatively in mid-November. The existing entrance on North Blake Avenue will remain open until project completion, city staff said.
