Garden Valley Boulevard is set to get some road work between Stephens Street and Fairmount Avenue.

Roseburg city staff posted a call for construction bids this week. The project will involve grinding and inlaying asphalt and updating sidewalks to become compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Work is slated to begin in early July. Workers will grind out and replace the top four inches of asphalt in the 1,800-foot stretch of Garden Valley Boulevard. The work will occur between the Los Dos Amigos Fiesta restaurant and Bailey Veterinary Clinic.

The project is estimated to cost about $550,000, which will come out of the city’s Urban Renewal Agency funds.

Urban renewal dollars are property taxes collected from property value increases in downtown and North Roseburg. They are earmarked specifically for improvement projects in those districts.

The city will accept construction bids until June 1. The Public Works Commission will consider the bids at its meeting June 8, and the Urban Renewal Board will discuss them after the city council meeting on June 12.
