Grant Acquired: Safe Routes to Schools

Recently, the City of Coos Bay successfully secured a $2 million grant for Eastside sidewalks through the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS) - the maximum amount one applicant can receive.

Civil West helped by having a shovel-ready project and guided the City through the competitive grant process, including analysis by the Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee. The map at right shows the area to get new sidewalks, rapid flashing beacon crossing, access ramps, and bike lanes.

New Engineer-of-Record Client: City of Winston

After providing civil engineering services to Winston for the past three years, we officially became their Engineer of Record on January 22nd. Recently, we advertised the Snow Pump Station project for bids, and helped secure funding for the project through the DEQ Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). The City received a $730,000 loan and $500,000 loan forgiveness. We have also solicited bids for a maintenance shop, are working on several sewer mainline projects, and are updating the City's Standard Drawings. The City has many more improvements projects on the horizon, and we are excited to help them achieve their goals.

Civil West Celebrates 10 Years of Excellence!

To celebrate 10 years of providing superior engineering service, Civil West staff and their families spent a day whitewater rafting on the McKenzie River, eating delicious BBQ, and enjoying each other's company while camping at Belknap Hot Springs. It was an excellent opportunity to spend time with staff from other offices and reflect on what makes truly makes our firm great: the people.
