The Bainbridge Island City Council will consider approving a public works contract that will smooth out one of the city's bumpy roads.

Interim Public Works Director John Cunningham is proposing a contract with Lakeside Industries, Inc. to resurface the asphalt at the Bucklin Hill Road and Eagle Harbor Drive intersection.

The project is part of the Annual Roads Preservation program, which was brought up at a study session with the council on March 20.

If approved, Lakeside Industries will be overlaying the intersection, patching up potholes and grinding off particularly shabby spots of old asphalt.

The company estimates the project will cost between $50,000 and $60,000.

On Wednesday, the council will discuss whether or not to move forward with a contract that agrees to pay Lakeside Industries $48,305 to improve the intersection.

City council meetings are at 7 p.m. every Wednesday.

The Bucklin Hill Road and Eagle Harbor Drive intersection project will be discussed during the consent portion of the agenda this week at 7:55 p.m.
