On Monday July 18, the City Council awarded a contract for the 2011 Chip Seal Program to Doolittle Construction for $246,156.
The 2011 project provides for the treatment of streets along 212th Street SW between the Interurban Trail and 52nd Avenue W, 216th Street SW between the Interurban Trail and 66th Avenue W, and 244th Street SW between 56th Avenue and Cedar Way. The existing roadway pavement on these heavily traveled routes is worn and deteriorated and in need of repair and resurfacing.
Two of the routes (212th and 244th) straddle the boundary between Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood and Lake Forest Park respectively, so the project was designed as a joint jurisdiction project.
The City of Mountlake Terrace is taking the lead role in the project and will be reimbursed approximately $90,000 for the costs incurred to resurface the portions of 212th and 244th that are within Lynnwood and Lake Forest Park. The net project cost for Mountlake Terrace is approximately $156,000.
The chip seal work consists of applying crushed rock to a liquid asphalt layer that is applied to the existing road surface. After compaction, a coat of diluted emulsion “fog seal” is sprayed on to the surface to bind the aggregate, providing a finished surface.
The 2011 Chip Seal Project is scheduled to begin in August.
