More road relief: Delridge repaving goes out to bid

(Bumpy section of Delridge near Kenyon)
For the “I won’t believe it till I see it” contingent – the city is officially calling for bids on its plan to resurface Delridge Way SW south of Orchard. (See here and here.) As had been noted in our original reports, it’s a three-part proposal – they’re guaranteeing the resurfacing from Orchard to Henderson, no matter what; then if there’s money, they’ll go from Henderson to Roxbury on Delridge and that same stretch on 16th. The estimated “base bid” for the guaranteed part is $5.9 million to $6.5 million; for the extra work on Delridge, $1 million to $1.2 million more; for the extra work on 16th, $900,000 to $1.1 million more. Bids are due to be opened October 2nd. This plan was first mentioned during Mayor McGinn‘s May town hall in West Seattle; then in June, the city revealed at a Delridge Neighborhoods District Council meeting that it intends to “rechannelize” that section too (see the plan here).

    I heard it, I am hoping to believe it. I know last winter True North Surveying did a huge survey job, so I begin to believe something was about to be planned…

    A little off topic, but any word if 39th between Oregon and Fauntleroy getting a redo? (between WS Bowl and TJ’s)

    Does that mean they will fix the water leak on the NB side across from the Police Precinct/Home Depot?

    With activity starting up again in the hole, I would think anything on 39th would probably wait for that to finish.

    Great news about Delridge, but once this project is completed, I think the city and/or county should seriously consider looking at Roxbury from 35th to around 16th Ave SW. That stretch is in terrible shape especially from 26th SW to 17th SW.
