Bucoda - Main Street Regrade Project

Here's what's happening
10/19/2016  -  Update from Scott Boettcher   
Main Street Regrade Project will be closed as originally proposed due to cost, scale, and other issues.  Some unspent monies will be used for a feasibility study (subject to Flood Authority approval at 10-20-2016 meeting) regarding viability of a emergency bypass road out of the northerly end of town.  Remaining unspent monies will be returned (~$2.9M).  See feasibility proposal here.
9/13/2016  -  Update from Steve Willie   
Project is "on-hold" pending a decision by the Flood Authority as to whether or not to take the existing 30% plan (P.S. &E.) to a 90% milestone and/or to pursue altogether new alternatives to the existing project (as currently scoped).
See JWM&A recent (8-25-2016) progress report update here.
See JWM&A presentation (7-21-2016) to the Flood Authority here.
7/20/2016  -  Update from Steve Willie   
Project is at 30% design.
30% design cost estimate projects full construction cost in excess of $8M (formerly $3M).
Project will be reviewed and discussed at 7/21/2016 Flood Authority meeting in light of this new cost projection.
High level schedule items have been changed to TBD pending direction from 7/21/2016 Flood Authority Meeting.

5/18/2016  -  Update from Steve Willie   

See recent Progress Update here.

Few notes:

Height of fill is now estimated to be 4-6 feet, then 8-10 feet at the culverts themselves.
WSDOT defines the series of culverts as a bridge structure, so we are using the term bridge and culverts interchangeably.
Final design will not be completed this month (we are not quite to 30% for the reasons mentioned in the above Progress Update).
