Gray & Osborne, an engineering firm out of Yakima, has been selected by Grand Coulee to do the design work on a sidewalk project from SR-174 along Spokane Way down to Federal Avenue.
The project’s cost is listed as $215,000, of which $204,250 is funded by a grant from the State Transportation Improvement Board, according to the TIB website.
In its pitch for the work, Gray & Osborne stated that in recent years the firm has completed many similar sidewalk projects for communities of all sizes. The Yakima firm has done a number of much larger projects in the area, including the design of Electric City’s arsenic treatment plant and the current wastewater treatment project in Coulee Dam.
Gray & Osborne stated: “As you are aware, transportation improvements are the most visible public works projects constructed, making attention to detail and good public relations essential.”
The project will include construction of a curb, gutter and a 5-foot-wide sidewalk on the east side of Spokane Way. A storm drainage system will also be added.
