Another ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) project gets underway in our area next week.
On March 15, Acme Concrete Paving, Inc. of Spokane will begin work on a five-mile stretch of northbound US 195, installing steel “dowel bars” between the existing concrete panels in the northbound lanes. Following that, the concrete surface will be smoothed out and broken concrete panels will be replaced. The $2.4 million job will be paid for with ARRA funds that were left over from other local projects in 2009.
The work will take about three months to complete. Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane in some areas while the work is underway.
