EAST WENATCHEE — Ten city streets are slated for a fresh coat of asphalt this year.
The city received a grant from the state Transportation Improvement Board to repave 19th Street from Highway 28 to Eastmont Avenue and 11th Street from Valley Mall Parkway to Baker Avenue.
Using the same grant, the city will also repave portions of eight other streets: 2nd Street N.E., Rolf’s Court, Rolf’s Place, 4th Street N.E., Colby Court, Darwood Street, 9th Street N.E., N. Iowa Avenue and N. Grover Street.
Yakima-based engineers Gray & Osborne Inc. will design the project.
“And their timeframe is that they’ll have this thing under contract and it’ll be paved in late September, early October,” said City Engineer Greg Pezoldt.
Over 90 percent of the project will come from sources other than the city’s general fund.
The 11th Street and 19th Street projects will cost $632,500, with $569,250 paid for by a Transportation Improvement Board grant.
The eight other streets are funded in full by about $387,000 of Transportation Benefit District fees, perhaps better known as the $20 car tab fee. Three of the streets — 9th, Iowa and Grover Place — are projects carried over from 2015.
In total, the projects will cost over $1 million with $63,250 coming out of the city’s pocket.
