The NE 16th Street-Jefferson Avenue NE Stormwater Green Connections project will improve the water quality of stormwater runoff from NE 16th Street and Jefferson Avenue NE.

The project is funded by a Washington State Department of Ecology grant in the amount of $2,075,095, with a city matching component of $608,365 for a total of $2,683,460. In addition to the Washington State Department of Ecology grant, the City of Renton has also be awarded $182,600 from the King County 2019 Subregional Opportunity Fund (SROF). The King County 2019 SROF will be used to cover some of the city matching component that is required by the Department of Ecology.

Contract Award Information

The Surface Water Utility solicited proposals from consultants in accordance with City policy 252-02. Six proposals were received and evaluated, and three consultant firms were selected for interviews. KPG, Inc. ranked the highest and was selected to perform the work.

Council awarded the professional services contract to KPG, Inc., in the amount of $424,541, at its regularly scheduled meeting on January 28, 2019. 

Project work under this agreement will take approximately 18 months to complete and includes survey, geotechnical, and civil engineering design services.

Project Description

Stormwater improvements will include new catch basins, conveyance pipe, and water quality facilities such as bioretention cells and pervious sidewalks. In addition to the stormwater improvements, the city will upsize the existing water mains and install a new fire hydrant to provide additional fire coverage within the project limits.

Other improvements will include new curbs, gutters, and street restoration.

Project Update

The design team submitted the 90% design package to the Department of Ecology (DOE) for review on March 23, 2020. Once the DOE has completed their review, we will respond to any comments and put together the final construction documents to be bid upon by a contractor. Our tentative plan is to select a contractor in winter 2020/2021 and begin construction in spring 2021. However, due to COVID-19 and the impacts it is having on the City of Renton there may be changes to the schedule. Please continue to check back for updates.
