Next NSC Project Expected To Get Underway This Fall

A newsletter put out yesterday by the Washington State Department of Transportation- Eastern Region North says that the agency has been fortunate in obtaining very competitive bids on the North Spokane Corridor construction projects over the last few years. That means they saved enough on those bids to put the final component in the north half of the corridor, the Parksmith Road Interchange, out for construction bids.

Although the contract hasn't been awarded yet, the low bidder was the Max J. Kuney Company of Spokane at $6,917,161.

The Parksmith Road Interchange provides access to the Mead community and the adjacent industrial commercial property. Most of the earthwork for the interchange ramps was done as part of a previous project. The work should get underway this fall and be completed in mid-2012.
