Anybody who has ever walked on the north side of the Auburn Way South corridor between 17th Street Southeast to Muckleshoot Casino could tell you about the problem.
To be specific: no sidewalk, grubby going.
But now the city of Auburn wants pedestrians to know that by mid-October of this year, they’ll no longer have to walk in the mud.
That’s because the Auburn City Council recently awarded the contract to build that sidewalk to RW Scott Construction on its low bid of $588,838.
The city received six responsive bids, and RW Scott’s low bid was approximately 13 percent below the engineer’s estimate.
Staff performed reference checks and other verifications to determine that the company met the responsible bidding criteria, as it did.
Construction should start in August.
