Crews about to rebuild, improve local roads

Between Auburn Way North and I Street Northeast, 17th Street Northeast’s pavement is really showing what 40-plus seasons of passing traffic and weather can do to a street.

Now, here’s the good news – two to three weeks from now, construction crews are to begin a multi-million dollar project to rebuild not only 17th Street Northeast but three of its geezering cousin thoroughfares.

And not only to rebuild those streets but also to improve City-owned utilities, rebuild curb ramps to meet ADA standards and overlay selected streets that are in fair condition.

Late last month, the Auburn City Council awarded the $2.2 million construction contract to Tucci & Sons, Inc., on its low bid of $2.2 million plus Washington state sales tax of $61,307. The City received two responsive bids, and Tucci’s low bid came in about 12 percent above the City engineer’s estimate.

The other streets are:

• K Street Northeast between 12th Street Northeast and 14th Street Northeast;

• 122nd Ave Southeast between Southeast 316th Street and Southeast 317th Place, including the Southeast 316th Place and Southeast 317th Place cul-de-sacs; and

• Southeast 286th Street, east of 112th Avenue Northeast.

While work at each location will vary, the overall picture calls for water, sanitary sewer and storm drainage improvements as needed for each project.

Work should wrap in November.
