The roadway work is to begin by spring 2020 and is to be completed by summer 2021.

Funds for the professional services contract are available in the Street and Sidewalk Capital Project Fund account 401-4562-01.6014 A19193.

 

This is a Federal Funded contract and is subject to 80% reimbursement by the FHWA.
