The City of Tacoma’s Department of Public Works, has issued a request for bids (RFB) for the beautification of South Tacoma Way and Pacific Avenue.

The project will primarily include landscaping; clearing and grubbing, planting trees and shrubs, applying hydroseed, and rock placement for hardscapes. The bid also will address the assessment and repair of an existing irrigation system, as well as temporary fencing.

The area zoned for beautification is at the intersection of Pacific Avenue and South Tacoma Way. The landscaping will be along the north side of South Tacoma Way on both sides of Pacific Avenue.

Existing irrigation lines are present throughout the area, but will need to be modified as new plants and landscaping are introduced.

A budget of $110,000 to $130,000 is allotted for this project. Bids must be submitted by 11:00 a.m. on July 3. Read more here.
