Staff Activity Report - January 20th-26th, 2013
* City Hall Parking Lot Improvements
> Preliminary design plans for a proposed parking lot have been completed at the site of where the old Al & James Grocery once stood. Prelim plans are under review for added comments from City Administration. City is in process of having underground storage tank (UST) removed which will need to be done before any parking lot work can be started. Preliminary cost estimate for the parking lot project is at $210,573 and if project is to be done this fiscal year then funding must first be identified because this project was not a budgeted project this year.
* Bryan & Independence Intersection Traffic Signal Project
> Project was awarded to Traffic & Lighting Systems in the amount of $198,562.60. Work is 100% complete and traffic signals are in operation, however, there are several items on the punch list that contractor will complete by next week. Final as-built quantities being determined for determination of final construction costs. Staff not completed with as-built determination of final construction costs, thus, project will be brought forward for acceptance and placing maintenance bond into effect upon completion of as-built quantities of work determination at the February 18, 2013 City Commission meeting..

By Contract they have 180 days to complete the reconstruction of approximately 3.75 miles of 10 foot trail being installed. This project will be a complete removal and replacement of the City existing trail(s) around the Airport, and trail widened to 10 feet, approximately 3.75 miles of trail. Anticipate construction being completed by June 2013.

> ODOT awarded the Kickapoo Paving Project to Haskell-Lemon Construction for a total project construction cost of $10,930,517.98 (including water line costs) at their December 3rd Transportation Commission meeting. Brewer Construction, a subcontractor of Haskel-Lemon will be doing all the waterline relocation and improvements, as well as installation of all the drainage and storm sewer improvements. Work is scheduled to begin on Feb 11, 2013 at the Kickapoo Spur location with work progressing northward. First section (or phase) of construction will be from the Spur to Independence Street and once that section is completed that Contractor will then move forward from Independence to Federal, and so on.

> Design plans have been completed on the sidewalk from 7th to Farrall, and the City has received back approval for an enhanced lighted crosswalk across Farrall.
