1st Avenue Reconstruction

On August 21, 2017, the City of Othello began its latest major street reconstruction project.

The 1 st Avenue Reconstruction will run from State Route 26 to Spruce Street.  Work will include:

  • Complete reconstruction of the roadway from State Route 26 to Wahluke Street.

  • Full width grind and overlay from Wahluke Street to Spruce Street.

  • Installation of stormwater system piping and catch basins.

  • ADA ramp updates and intersection radius modifications where needed.


  • The contactor continues to work 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, to get the project finished as soon as possible.

  • The CTB (Cement Treated Base) subgrade, mixing cement with the aggregate below to create a solid surface under the asphalt, is completed. This was a difficult step in the process since it required several days to cure.

  • Asphalt is currently scheduled for Oct. 19. It will be crucial to not drive on the new asphalt to prevent damage.

  • The last 10 days of the project will include pavement markings and signs.

  • Project completion is expected by early November.

Schedule updates and additional information will be posted weekly.
