The Mountlake Terrace City Council approved the selection of Rodarte Construction of Auburn as the main firm to build a $1.8 million stormwater treatment facility at the corner of 233rd Street Southwest and 58th Avenue West in Mountlake Terrace. Construction is expected to begin in January 2014, with completion slated for late summer. At $1,079,590, Rodarte Construction was the lowest of 17 bids for the project.
The Town Center Stormwater Facility will be located underground beneath the parking lot outside the Mountlake Terrace Library. The facility will provide treatment for stormwater and rain runoff generated in the city’s Town Center district, in addition to providing downstream flood control for an unnamed creek that runs through Veterans Memorial Park.
The new facility is needed to meet the expected increase in stormwater runoff generated from new development in the Town Center district, city officials said.
Following the construction of the facility, the library parking lot will be rebuilt and reconfigured to increase parking capacity.
The Mountlake Terrace City Council awarded the stormwater facility contract at its Dec. 2 council meeting.
