The project is being advertised for private contractor bids
December 9, 2013. Bids are expected to be opened in January, with construction set for later in 2014.
This P-1, Roadway Preservation project replaces the asphalt driving lanes on I-90 for 10 miles from the Vantage Bridge to a mile west of George. The asphalt is also being replaced for the Silica Road Interchange (Exit 143), the Wanapum Scenic View Area (Exit 139 Eastbound), and Echo Scenic View Area (Exit 139 Westbound). Four miles of badly deteriorated asphalt shoulders are being replaced just west of George. This project also includes fog sealing of the driving lanes for the SR 26 interchange (Exit 137) at the east end of the Vantage Bridge.
Why is WSDOT
replacing the asphalt on I-90?
The eastbound left lane and both westbound lanes are showing signs of distress. Cracks and potholes are forming in the driving lanes and some of the shoulders. We'll grind off the top layer of asphalt and repave it.
The End Result
Repaving preserves the underlying asphalt layers and helps prevent more serious damage to the roadway.
- A Smoother driving surface
- Reduced Maintenance Costs
- Preservation of the Roadbed
What is the project timeline?
The project is being advertised for bids on 12/09/13 bids will be opened in January, with construction scheduled for Spring/Summer of 2014 with completion by Fall.
