The city of Spokane has awarded a contract worth just under $2.5 million to Spokane Rock Products Inc. to complete the second phase of street rehabilitation on Second Avenue between Howard and Arthur streets.
Work is expected to begin this month and is scheduled to be completed this September, says city spokeswoman Ann Deasy.
Construction will be done in three stages, she says, starting this month between Division Street and Arthur Street. In early May, street work between Division and Browne Street will begin; and work between Browne and Howard will commence at the end of June, she says.
One lane of traffic on Second will be open during most of construction, and signalized intersections on the street also will be open to traffic but will be controlled by stop signs.
Most nonsignalized intersections will be closed to through traffic.
As part of the project, new storm sewer catch basins will be installed, and a 12-inch water main east of Howard Street will be replaced. Also, traffic signals will be replaced at the intersections of Stevens, Washington, Browne, Division, Sherman and Arthur streets, she says.
Spokane Rock Product's bid of about $2.48 million came in just under the project engineer's estimate of $2.59 million.
The city completed the first phase of rehabilitation work on Second last fall, from Sunset Boulevard east to Howard. Inland Asphalt Co., of Spokane, was the contractor on that $3.2 million project. That portion of the project included rebuilding some connecting streets.
The project is being paid for by the city's 10-year street bond, as well as funds from the city's water and wastewater departments.
Spokane Rock Products also recently was awarded a $3.7 millioncontract to complete the first phase of work to extend Riverside Avenue east of Division Street.
