Sprague Avenue enhancement project enters second phase

The City of Tacoma announced Tuesday it will accept bids from select contractors for the second phase of the Sprague Avenue enhancement project.

One year ago, the City of Tacoma wrapped up work on the first phase of the project, which included better separation between South Sprague Avenue and the adjacent residential street known as residential Sprague; bio-retention rain gardens to filter stormwater runoff; and a new traffic-calming median and neighborhood gateway sign that welcomes drivers entering Tacoma from State Route 16.

According to bid documents, the second phase of the project calls for soil amendments and landscape improvements — such as planting nearly five-dozen trees — on the west side of South Sprague Avenue between South 19th Street and South 23rd Street.

The project budget is estimated between $150,000 and $175,000. A pre-bid meeting will be held on Mon., March 10, at 2 p.m. at the Center for Urban Waters, 326 E. D St., Room 101, in Tacoma. Bids from Small Works Roster contractors notified directly by the City of Tacoma will be received until 11 a.m. on Mon., March 17. More information is available online here and here and here.
