Pavement will be restored, sidewalks improved and new pavement markings installed on SR 215/Riverside Drive in Omak.
The project is currently in the design stage. It is scheduled to be advertised for private contractor bids Nov. 25, 2013 with bid opening a month later and construction expected in the spring of 2014 with completion that 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
What is the project timeline?
The project design will continue to be refined until it is advertised for bids in the fall of 2013. Construction is scheduled to start in the spring of 2014 with completion that fall.
Project signage will reflect the cost of construction engineering, project bid award and sales tax.
