Construction on US 195 paving project in Whitman County starts Thursday, April 22

SPOKANE, Wash. - On Thursday April 22nd work will get underway on a paving project in southern Whitman County.  The job consists of resurfacing work on US 195 from the Idaho border near Lewiston to the Town of Colton, about eight miles north.

Poe Asphalt Paving, Inc. of Post Falls, Idaho is the prime contractor on the job with a construction bid of $2,014,005. The work should take about two months to complete.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provided the funding for pavement improvements on this section of US 195.  The work was made possible through savings on other ARRA construction projects built in 2009.

This paving project is a part of the Department's pavement preservation program.  The current road surface is deteriorating as a result of routine wear and tear.  The existing surface will be ground out and replaced with a new layer of Hot Mix Asphalt.  In Uniontown the entire roadway surface will be removed down to the subgrade gravel and be fully rebuilt. 

Minor work in some locations is scheduled to start this week. Work in Uniontown should begin in early May and take about 10 days.  During the Uniontown work, traffic will be one lane directed by flaggers 24 hours per day.

Pavement grinding operations in rural areas should get underway later in May.  After the grinding, drivers should be alert for grooved pavement.

During grinding and paving operations, motorists should expect single lane traffic directed by flaggers and pilot cars with possible delays up to 15 minutes at times.

The project should be fully completed by late June.  As always, paving work is dependent on the weather.  Wet, cool conditions may cause delays to the paving operations on this project.

Washington State is administering the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act investments with an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability. Governor Gregoire created a Web site, www.recovery.wa.gov , so every Washingtonian can see where tax dollars are going and hold government accountable for the results.
