BROADWAY AVENUE AND RAILROAD STREET RECONSTRUCTION

Location: Wilbur, WA

Horrocks provided roadway improvement services for the Town of Wilbur. Several of the Town’s roads had degraded severely, and unsafe areas were identified where multiple accidents had occurred. Horrocks conducted a Public Meeting to gather community input and discuss the alternatives for reconstructing Railroad Street and Broadway Avenue. Because the preferred alternative straddled Highway 2, the design required approval from the Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) prior to construction. Due to insufficient stormwater facilities in the project area, Horrocks designed new median stormwater facilities that separated traffic in an accident zone, collected runoff, and provided beautification of the corridor. Low-maintenance landscaping was selected to reduce Town costs. Horrocks also provided cultural consultation and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) permitting. Cement-treated soils were used to augment the existing base and saved the Town approximately $180,000 in construction costs. Horrocks performed all construction monitoring and provided closeout documents to the Town and the Transportation Improvement Board (TIB).
