Pavement will be restored, sidewalks improved and new pavement markings installed on SR 215/Riverside Drive in Omak.
The project was advertised for private contractor bids Dec. 9, 2013. Two qualifying bids were opened on Jan. 30 and on Feb. 19 contract #8567 was awarded to Granite Contruction Company for $3,184,187.96, 1% over the engineering estimate. Construction expected in the spring with completion next fall.
These (P-1) Highway Capital Preservation-Roadway Paving and Safety Restoration Program projects will extend the pavement life of SR 155 and SR 215 and upgrade signage, striping, sidewalk and other roadway features.
Why is WSDOT
Paving and improving these sections of SR 155 and SR 215?
This roadway is in need of pavement restoration due to the deterioration of the existing asphalt from normal traffic use. Existing sidewalk ramps don't meet current American's with Disabilities Act standards. Striping and other pavement markings are in need of restoration.
The End Result
The roadway will be improved with stronger asphalt to preserve its load carrying capacity. Sidewalk ramps will be upgraded to current ADA standards. New pavement markings will be installed for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
- Extends roadway life
- Upgrades safety features
- Provides a smoother driving surface
- Improves access for pedestrians and people with disabilities
