N. Front Street Overlay/Drain Line Project to begin July 5, 2016

Funding Sources:

Transportation Improvement Board Small City Preservation Program
Dayton Transportation Benefit District Tax

The City of Dayton was successful in securing a grant to make much needed street improvements to N. Front Street between Main Street and Dayton Avenue. The project is slated to begin in early July 2016. 

The N. Front Street Overlay/Water Drain Line Replacement Project will include replacing the reservoir’s drain line, installing new catch basins to improve N. Front Street’s drain system, removing and patching failed areas of N. Front Street’s pavement, constructing ADA sidewalk ramps as needed to meet code, and applying a 2” overlay to the entire street. It is anticipated that the project will be completed sometime in August 2016.

In advance, the City appreciates the community’s patience throughout this project. If you have any questions, thoughts and/or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the City at 111 S. 1 st Street, Dayton, WA, 509-382- 2361, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
