The design and preliminary engineering phase of the University Way Overlay Project is now complete. The City of Ellensburg is planning to start construction July 25th. Granite Construction Company has been awarded the construction contract.
The proposed project includes the grinding/ rotomilling of the existing asphalt roadway surface and the placement of new asphalt wearing course on University Way from Chestnut St. to approximately 2500 feet E of Reecer Creek Road. The project will also include new channelization, installation of traffic signal loops, ADA upgrades and replacement of existing curb and gutter. Side street approaches will be ground and overlayed a maximum of 100' to correct drainage problems, remove failing asphalt at previous overlay joints, removal and adjustment of existing plastic crosswalk marking to match upgraded pedestrian facilities, and for full removal of existing traffic loops.
