WHY IT’S NEEDED
E. Theater Lane accesses property where a new elementary school will be located, as well as new residential neighborhoods. This project will meet near future transportation needs of the city.
The paving of Theater Lane’s travel lanes creates an incentive for other potential private sector developers by reducing the cost to connect to the road and sidewalks.
The paving project, combined with water system upgrades in the area, has already attracted private development in the Cimmaron Terrace subdivision. As a result of that private development, city staff worked to also coordinate a public-private partnership between the City, the developer, and the Hermiston School District, to ensure that sewer services were extended at the same time as the paving.
* This project attained substantial cost savings from the original cost estimate as a result of partnering with adjacent private development, and by adding the work as a Change Order to a larger non-CIP water system project which was taking place at the same time along this street.
City Council approved adding the project to scope of work for Anderson Perry, the contractor building the nearby water tower.
Hermiston voters approve school bond measure to fund new school near site.
Contractor begins placing processing base rock. This process should take 2-3 weeks to be ready for placing asphalt.
COVID-19 pandemic causes chaos in construction industry. Washington Governor Inslee declares Construction “non-essential,” causing a slowdown for the Washington-based contractors working on this project.
Crews permitted to return to projects and paving is completed in late April.
Striping work is completed, road re-opened to traffic.
