All Roads Paving has begun work on Independence east of Sequoyah with removal and replacement of badly broken and cracked concrete paving panels. Work is approximately 65% complete. Work on Independence Street will continue in this area for the next 5-7 weeks. Work on Independence Street is on-going.

Anticipate construction being completed by June 2013.
* City Hall Parking Lot Improvements (no change on project this week)
> 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 (no change on project this week)
> 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 19, 2013 City Commission meeting..
* Main Street Streetscape Project (no change on project this week)
> Preliminary design work has been started as time allows on this project. Project design will follow closely the design layout that was used on the Bell Street Streetscape Project. Preliminary design is approximately 50% complete.
* Kickapoo Street Widening Project (no change on project this week)
> 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. Project is estimated to take 18-24 months construction time. Kickapoo will not be closed, and two-way traffic will be maintained at all times.

Anticipate issuing a Notice to Proceed by the first week in April, and Contractor will have 3 months to complete. There are several utilities hanging from the bridge deck, the most critical is the ONG gas line that feeds the eastern part of Shawnee, and ONG has requested that work not start until after the winter months because they are unable to route the amount of gas that flows through this line to adequately serve the east side of Shawnee.
* Bell Street Streetscape Project (from Farrall to 7th Street) (no change on project this week)
> 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. ODOT had conducted a recent traffic and pedestrian study and came back with the conclusion that no warrants were met for signalization or crosswalk improvements; however, they have given the City to install inpaving yellow strobe lights actuated by pedestrians and a lighted flashing crosswalk signage when in use. Also we received back the OG&E cost proposal on installing decorative lighting along the sidewalk. Cost of OG&E lighting will be approximately $30,050.20. City received 7 bids ranging from $95,000 to $164,000. Staff is compiling bid tabulations and will report back to the City Commission at their February 4, 2013 Commission meeting with a recommendation.
