Pickett reconstruction to start in North Bend

Dan Crocker Construction of North Bend was awarded a contract to rebuild North Bend’s Pickett Avenue.

The project, the second top priority for funding from the city’s 0.2-percent sales tax increase, will improve the street from Sixth Street Northeast  to Northeast 12th Street.

Bids for the project came in higher than estimated.

Reconstruction of Pickett will cost about $532,000, which combined with the $413 price tag of the Boalch Avenue reconstruction, is still within the price range of the $1.4 million bond the city council authorized in June for these projects.
