City to fix sidewalks on Main, Federal

 


Grand Coulee’s sidewalk project for Main Street and Federal Avenue will go out for bid in May, city officials said last week.

The project is largely funded by a $436,905 grant from the state’s Transportation Improvement Board. Members of the board were in Grand Coulee last year to help city officials shape the project.

City Clerk Carol Boyce said bid packets will be ready early in May with the potential bid opening by the end of May. Completion of the project is scheduled by the end of the year.

City council members received the breakdown of the project at their meeting last Tuesday night.

Gray & Osborne, the city’s engineering firm, is preparing bid packets with estimates of the various stages of development.

The project calls for the replacement of existing sidewalk, curb, and gutter on Main Street and Federal Avenue. Work includes installing new sidewalk, curb ramps, storm drainage and signage.

To address Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, the project will install sidewalk bulb outs on Federal Avenue to provide sufficient space for landing behind the curb ramps. The project also incorporates the reuse of existing sidewalks where possible.
