INFORMATION: On January 18, 2011, the Board of Aldermen approved a Municipal Agreement (ID# 2040) with NCDOT for design and construction of a sidewalk on the west side of Rogers Road.

The Rogers Road Sidewalk Project consists of the installation of a five-foot wide concrete sidewalk one-mile in length on the west side of Rogers Road. The project has been part of the Town's Capital Improvement Plans and is funded with a combination of bond funds and STP-DA funds.

The Town has submitted final plan specifications to NCDOT for their approval. The Town is expecting to receive approval by the end of June. Once plan approval is granted, the Town can begin the bidding process. The current plan is to select a contractor and enter into a construction agreement in August, with an anticipated construction begin date in September. This would put the project on a path to completion in December. For a complete timeline of the project, refer to Attachment A - Rogers Road Sidewalk Action Plan.

Since it is anticipated the Town will need to enter into a contract for the construction phase of the project in August when the Board will not have a meeting, staff is requesting the Board provide authorization for the Town Manager to enter into this contract.


FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: Town staff will be involved in project management. Capital funds are appropriated and will use bond funds and STPDA funds. The construction phase of the project is currently estimated at $1,093,880.
