New sidewalk and a new staircase were recently installed near Jack Long Park. The project provided curbs and sidewalks along the north side of 222nd Street SW which completed a missing link in the sidewalk network connecting 58th and 60th Avenues W. Sidewalk ramps and drainage improvements were constructed at the intersection of 222nd and 60th. Where the new sidewalk passes the frontage of Jack Long Park, a stairway was constructed up a steep grassy slope to the park’s south entrance.
Nine bidders originally submitted bids ranging from $120,366 to $162,345. The low bid was about 40% below the engineer’s estimate of $200,433. A Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funded about 80% of the construction contract cost.
