City of Airway Heights
Russell and Sprague Construction Project
Description of the work.
The City of Airway Heights is reconstructing Russell Street from 6th Ave to Sprague Avenue and Sprague Ave. from Russell St. to just east of the Corrections Facility. The project includes total reconstruction of the roadway with new pavement, curbs on both sides, an asphalt path along the west side of Russell St. and along the north side of Sprague Ave. New street lights will also be installed along the path.
Schedule of work.
The work on the roadway has been started with the grinding and removal of the old pavement. Some new utilities will be installed on both Russell St. and Sprague Ave. This work will continue until about July 13th. The Contractor will then start work on the road reconstruction. The existing gravel will be removed down to the dirt. New gravel will be placed, curbing will be installed, the road and path will be paved and then striped. This work will continue until about the end of September.
Access to DOC, ORV Park during construction.
Access to the 2 DOC gates, and the ORV Park will be open throughout the construction. There may be brief times that these are closed for excavation, paving and other work but these will be kept to a minimum. Traffic control signs will indicate the road is closed to through traffic, but it will be open to the public visiting those facilities and DOC staff.
The STA bus stop that was located near the north DOC gate has been relocated east on Sprague St. to Industrial Way. Individuals riding the bus will need to get off or catch the bus at this new location. STA has placed signs at the old and new locations to help direct riders.
