The project was designed by Century West Engineering Corp. A public open house was conducted in December of 2017, click here for presentation, with several follow up meetings to present the City Council and the community on project details.  The bid opening was held August 21, 2018, and the construction contract awarded at the August 28,2018 City Council meeting.  

Linn Road Schedule 
Initially utility undergrounding was proposed to occur in September of 2018, followed by four months of utility companies providing relocation, prior to the main work by the City’s contractor.  A preconstruction meeting was held October 22, 2018, in anticipation of the work by Avista Utilities’ contractor.  NPL began work in early November of 2018, and completed by mid-January of 2019.
