A project to install sidewalks and other improvements along Easy Street in Brookings is slated to proceed this summer in the vicinity of Kalmiopsis School. The project is being primarily funded through the federal “Safe Routes to School” program.
ODOT staff reported receiving three bids from local contractors with the low bid of $546,680 coming from Tidewater Contractors, Inc.
The total budget for the project, including ODOT engineering, is $661,700, with the City providing up to $74,238. Construction on the project is expected to commence immediately upon the completion of the current school year.
ODOT will be managing the project.
