Staff has had early conversations with the apparent low bidder, and they have indicated that they anticipate starting on the Division Street portion of the project the week of April 30, 2018. Once City Council awards the contract, Staff will pursue those conversations, and distribute information to the affected properties immediately. Below is a preliminary schedule of what is expected for each phase of construction:
Phase I - Division Street from Sixth Street to Eight StreetStaff will be scheduling individual meetings with the affected property owners on Phase 1 during the week of April 23rd. As mentioned above, the Contractor has indicated that they plan on starting on Phase 1 the week of April 30th.
Phase II - Seventh Street from Water Street to Washington StreetStaff will also schedule individual meetings with properties on Phase II of the project during the week of April 23rd. Work on Phase II isn't expected to begin until mid to late July.
Phase III - Washington Street Mill and Overlay and Parking Lot ConstructionPhase III, which is the mill and overlay on Washington Street from Second Street to Woodley Street, and various parking lot construction is not expected to begin until mid to late July. Staff will not schedule individual meetings with affected property owners at this time. These meetings will be scheduled closer to the time when construction is scheduled to begin.
Again, the above schedule is subject to change, once City Council awards the contract, Staff will get a pre-construction conference scheduled with the apparent low bidder, and a more concrete schedule will be derived.
