Stormwater improvement planned on West Plains

Corridor Contractors selected by county to construct first phase

  • Print Article

Airway Heights-based Corridor Contractors LLC has been selected as the contractor for the first phase of construction in the West Terrace Capital Improvement Project, which will address the chronic stormwater management issues on the West Plains.

Construction is valued at $5.5 million.

Representatives of Spokane County and Corridor Contractors couldn’t be reached immediately for comment.

Stormwater management issues over time have resulted in property damage, unsafe driving conditions, and disgruntled residents, according to Spokane County’s West Terrace Stormwater Study.

Three priority stormwater projects were identified in the study. They regard the Hayford Road storm drain, an Aero Road storm drain, and a Hallett Road culvert.

A capital improvement project update notice states that the projects have been combined into one large project to be completed in two phases.

The West Terrace neighborhood is located south of the city of Airway Heights and Interstate 90, and north of the city of Cheney. The neighborhood also encompasses the Fairways Golf Course, located at 9810 W. Melville Road.

The Hayford Road storm drain replacement is intended to help ease multiple areas of localized pond-water accumulation caused by disjointed connections to a downstream drainage system.

A new storm drain is planned to connect those areas and will carry stormwater away from the neighborhood, project information states.

The second phase in the capital improvement project involves bringing the individual connections online.

The stormwater project, which is anticipated to be completed in spring 2023, is considered critical for regional growth to support future investment in the West Terrace neighborhood, according to Spokane County’s project summary information.

Corridor Contractors was established in 2016 and performs heavy civil earthwork, demolition, underground utilities installation, asphalt milling, and concrete site work, according to its website.

The company specializes in work on public sector projects, such as Liberty High School, in Spangle; the Eastern Washington University science building, in Cheney; and the Argonne Road-Montgomery Avenue Intersection, in Spokane Valley.
