SPOKANE VALLEY — The Council voted unanimously to award funds to N.A.
Degerstrom, Inc. for the Pines and Mission Intersection Improvement Project at its regular meeting on July 11.
The total estimated cost of the project will be $2,207,550 and is broken down by category. Preliminary engineering expenses are $351,650, and developer contributions will be $117,507.
Right-of-way construction costs will be $134,000, with other construction costs running $1,721,900.
The project will add a southbound right-turn lane and provide two eastbound left-turn lanes to the existing intersection at Pines Road and Mission Avenue.
The project includes sidewalk improvements, storm water improvements, pavement preservation and revisions to the signal system.
The disparity between the engineer’s estimate and the contractor bid, according to posted documentation, is due to several factors.
It was most notably caused by delays in obtaining final approval from Washington State Department of Transportation.
The state transportation department requires that the project be constructed next season, which increased costs due to anticipated price escalation over the next year.
