On May 30, 2017, the City of West Richland was successful in obtaining a $1,307, 494 Federal STP-UL grant to fund the construction of this project.  While the grant funding was secured, the grant funding was also fiscally constrained and would not be available until 2021. Since other projects within our region are still in design and are not ready to go to construction in 2018, the funding for this project was moved forward to 2018.  City staff is currently in the process of completing the necessary federal paperwork to obligate the federal grant funds, obtain final approvals, advertise for bids, award a construction contract with a contractor and begin construction of the project. While much of the paperwork timeline is outside of the city’s control, the tentative schedule for this project is for roadway construction to begin in the summer of 2018 and be completed in the summer of 2019. There may be some water and sewer utility work occurring on the City’s portion of Mt. Adams View Drive in the spring of 2018.
