Radcliff City Council will vote today to accept a contractor for the North Dixie Boulevard Streetscape Project, which the city rebid last year after multiple bidders were disqualified for failing to meet bid qualifications.
The city’s engineering department is recommending the city accept C&A Concrete’s bid of $779,268, the lowest of six bids. The highest bid was from Bluegrass Contracting at $1,182,388.75, according to a report released by the department.
The city was awarded a federal transportation enhancement grant of $742,775 from the state, which requires a 20 percent match. City Engineer Toby Spalding said about $25,347.50 already has been spent on survey and design work.
All piping and needed stormwater improvements from East Lincoln Trail Boulevard to the Econo Lodge motel will be covered by the storm water fund at $44,758, according to the report. The city also removed roughly $17,000 of sidewalk work from the project, which will be covered in the fourth phase of the Wilson Road sidewalk project, Spalding said.
The purpose of the project is to close several unnecessary or poorly defined access points and make sidewalk and landscaping improvements along North Dixie between Lincoln Trail Boulevard and City Park Road. The hope is to improve the look and safety of the road, Spalding said. Originally, the project stretched from Lincoln Trail Boulevard to Knox Boulevard until the city separated the Wilson Road sidewalk enhancements.
