Improvements await B Street Northwest

This summer the City of Auburn will rebuild B Street Northwest between 37th Street Northwest and 49th Street Northwest, replace sanitary sewer main along 49th Street Southwest and install a new sewer main along B Street Northwest.

Further, it will fix damaged sidewalk, curb and gutter, upgrade several driveways and replace curb ramps to square them with the Americans with Disabilities Act and address drainage issues along the corridor.

On June 19, the City Council awarded the contract to Johansen Excavating, Inc. on its low bid of $2.5 million.

The City received six responsive bids, one of which was in error and removed from consideration. Johansen’s low bid was about 4.2 percent below the engineer’s estimate.

Paying for the project are the arterial street preservation fund and a sewer fund. Construction should start in July 2017 and close by December 2017.
