Ferndale City Council will hold a public hearing to prioritize projects on the proposed 2016 – 2021 Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), which prioritizes street projects within the City of Ferndale.

Projects included in the 6-Year TIP are sent to the Washington State Department of Transportation in consideration for funding through their Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

Recently, funds were provided via the STIP program to the City for the recently completed Church Road improvements project from Main Street to Heather Drive.
