Coulee Dam will move ahead with applying for a grant to fix the sidewalks on Ferry Avenue, several portions of which have been heaving several inches as tree roots underneath push up the concrete.
Councilmember Fred Netzel and the city’s consulting engineer Kurt Holland, of Varela Engineering, pulled together a grant application just in time to submit to the state’s Transportation Improvement Board to replace all 1,200 feet of walkways along each side of the street.
Coulee Dam is asking for some $103,600 in grant funding. If the state grants that money, the city will have to match it with $16,400 to complete the $120,000 project.
The city council OK’d the application at its June 12 meeting.
