Concept Study - Snyder & Associates, $248,950.00
The project, using LOST funding - $1,300,000.00, will include the first phase of the extension of Alburnett Road from 7th Avenue to Boyson Road.The funding includes several early phases of the project: concept study, design, and possible right-of-way acquisitions. Project funding is not intended to provide for the construction of the bridge over Indian Creek, but will provide for extensive preliminary work to be completed.
On Feb. 15, 2001 Council approved the alignment option extending Alburnett Road south from Edinburgh Drive, south across Indian Creek, through Willow Park and along 2nd Street to 7th Avenue. Council later reaffirmed the need for the realignment due to traffic volumes and congestion along Central Avenue and 10th Street. On March 17, 2016 City Council directed staff to solicit engineering services to complete a concept study. Staff has since solicited Requests for Proposals, which were due on April 13, 2016. After staff's review of the proposals and recommendation to City Council, Snyder and Associates was awarded the contract June 23, 2016.
