- WSDOT has rejected the single bid for this project for the 2017 season, due to it being higher than the engineer's estimate.
- We will re-advertise this project in fall of 2017 and anticipate that a less saturated market will engage additional contractors and bring down bid prices.
- Work on this project will happen in 2018.
Now scheduled for spring 2018, WSDOT contractor crews will repave two three-mile sections of State Route 20 Spur west of Sharpes Corner to improve and preserve the highway. Crews will pave Sharpes Corner to Commercial Avenue and from Commercial Avenue/12th Street to the San Juan ferry terminal. Commercial Avenue will be repaved at a later date.
Why is WSDOT
repaving SR 20 Spur west of Sharpes Corner?
The area was last paved about 20 years ago, and the road is showing signs of wear and tear. There are cracks and potholes in places along the highway. The $6.7 million project will extend the life of the roadway and provide a smoother ride for the more than 30,000 vehicles that use the road every day.
The End Result
This project will extend the life and improve the ride quality of the highway when it’s completed.
- Preserves infrastructure and extends the life of the highway.
- Reduces the need for costly emergency maintenance repairs and unexpected closures.
