The contract for construction of the $17 million Washington Street rehabilitation and redesign project has been awarded and construction is scheduled to begin in early January. In addition to milling, paving and striping Washington Street from Observer Highway to 15th Street, the project also includes: -Installation of 15 new traffic signals with pedestrian countdown timers, emergency pre-emption system, and optimized signal timing -Installation of concrete bump outs at corners with ADA handicap curb ramps and high visibility crosswalks -Addition of 15 rain gardens and drainage improvements to capture stormwater and help reduce the City’s flooding -Replacement of century-old water mains and service lines to new valve boxes at the curb -Installation of conduit for an electrical microgrid and fiber optic cabling -Refurbishment of all existing street lights with more efficient lighting fixtures -Addition of Class II unprotected bicycle lanes from Observer Highway to 8thStreet -Creation of dedicated commercial loading zones The scope of the project improvements is limited to the roadway from curb to curb. With the exception of corners and improved lighting, the project will not include replacement of sidewalks or street furniture. Construction Schedule Work on the project was scheduled to begin this fall, however due to a frivolous legal challenge by one of the bidders, the City was unable to award the contract until last week. The legal challenge was dismissed and the City won the litigation in full and is now proceeding with this important project. The contract has been approved, and the contractor has been issued the Notice to Proceed and has begun mobilization for the project. The contractor anticipates beginning construction in early January, with the digging of test pits to minimize future utility conflicts during construction. The contract requires that all work between Observer Highway and 8th Street be complete within 365 days and that the entire project between Observer Highway and 15th Street be complete within 550 days.

How has COVID-19 affected your business?
In some ways yes. I am regularly on TV talking about fashion and beauty, and that has taken a back seat.
