Radcliff City Council approved the bid for the Wilson Road Bypass reconstruction project and also reviewed a site plan and zoning change for new housing units off Battle Training Road.
During a special meeting Monday afternoon, the council approved a bid from Filcon Construction at $3,479,000 for the North Wilson Road reconstruction, which will be funded by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet — money that will be expended by the city and reimbursed by the state.
The bid was one of seven that ranged in price with more than $1 million between the highest and lowest bidders. Louisville Paving offered the highest bid at $4,512,052.90.
Councilwoman Barbara Baker expressed concerns about the discrepancy of the bids but Councilman Stan Holmes pointed out that four of the seven bids fell below $4 million.
City Engineer Toby Spalding said the contractor will have 10 days to mobilize on site once the contract is signed, which should be completed in the next few days.
State officials expect the project to be complete by next year.
The council also reviewed a site plan and zone map amendment offered by Jerry Bickett at 367 and 387 Battle Training Road.
The properties contain roughly 8.289 acres, all of which is zoned Residential-2, and Bickett has asked that 5.398 acres be rezoned to a Planned Unit Development zone, a mixed use zone that will allow all types of housing, according to City Planner Murray Wanner.
Wanner said Bickett currently has four structures on the properties, which consists of single-family housing and a multi-family dwelling. The multi-family structure would be demolished upon construction of Golden Gates Planned Unit Development, nine lots that will house five lots of duplexes, three single-family houses and a multi-family structure holding four fourplexes. Wanner said Golden Gates will contain 30 total housing units once completed.
The city requires the developer to issue both a site plan and zone map amendment for approval at the same time, Wanner said, and the council plans to vote on both the site plan and the zoning change at its regular meeting next Tuesday.
