Phase 1 of Webb Road construction becomes more costly in Nez Perce County

LEWISTON, ID - The first phase of the Nez Perce County Webb Road reconstruction project is set to begin this fall.

Phase one involves roadway reconstruction and widening, minor realignment, paving, new guardrails, drainage improvements, as well as bicycle improvements.

"Our match was at 7.4% which is $344,000 and unfortunately we can't do all of phase one because it is a little more costly than it was originally," said Nez Perce County Commission Chairman, Bob Tippett.

This project will also be funded by state dollars. Bids for the project start this summer.
