Spokane Rock Products Inc. is the apparent low bidder for an almost $2 million project to rehabilitate a 2 1/2-mile stretch of east Bridgeport Avenue on Spokane's North Side.
The city of Spokane street department project is to include curb-to-curb repaving of Bridgeport between Division and Crestline streets, as well as some surrounding residential streets, says city spokeswoman Ann Deasy.
The two residential streets also to be repaved are Courtland and Glass avenues between Perry Street and Crestline, she says.
Work is being funded by the city's 10-year street bond as well as its water and waste water departments, Deasy says. Some residential water service lines will be replaced as part of the project, as well as some storm drain inlet structures, she says.
Many of the water lines that are to be replaced are located under sidewalks, and those sidewalks also will be replaced, Deasy adds.
She says the city originally had planned to grind down the existing asphalt street surface and repave it, but because that stretch of Bridgeport's road surface isn't thick, the entire street surface has to be replaced.
Construction is set to begin in mid-August and is planned to wrap up in late October, Deasy says.
Traffic traveling westbound on Bridgeport is to be detoured to east Empire Avenue via Division or Nevada Street, and eastbound traffic is to be rerouted to North Foothills Drive, she says.
The city also recently awarded an about $641,000 contract to Airway Heights-based Cameron Reilly LLC to reconstruct the intersection of Francis Avenue and Addison Street on the North Side.
The currently asphalt intersection will be replaced with concrete, and the project is tentatively scheduled to begin in August and to wrap up in November, Deasy says.
It's being funded by the Washington state Transportation Improvement Board and a real estate excise tax, she says.
Throughout the duration of work, Francis approaching Addison will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and access to Addison from Francis will be closed, Deasy says.
