Summer Projects Will Kick Up Dust In/Around: Opportunity, Chester
Some Opportunity and Chester area residents will be dealing with torn-up streets this summer as construction crews install sewer lines in their neighborhood.
Work on the Twinview sewer and water project in the Opportunity area is expected to begin next month.
The $1.8 million program will extend sewer service and new water pipes to nearly 350 homes and 16 businesses.
The project area is bordered roughly by Pines, Bowdish, 16th and Fourth streets.
K.C. Construction of Hayden Lake, Idaho, will do the work.
The company is currently finishing up a similar project in the Evergreen area and will be transferring their equipment to the Twinview project in about two weeks, said Mark Stiltz, sewer project manager for Spokane County.
Construction in that area is expected to extend into the fall, Stiltz said.
“They should be done with their pipe installation by the end of October,” he said.
Property owners will be assessed most of the cost of the project. The county will kick in a small percentage.
The other sewer project scheduled for the Valley this summer is expected to get under way in August.
It will provide sewer service to about 50 homes in the Chester Hills neighborhood, Stiltz said.
Both projects are part of the county’s six-year sewer plan for the Valley.
Officials hope to provide sewer service in nearly 17 other neighborhoods west of Sullivan before the year 2000.
