Purpose: The primary objective of this project is to reconstruct West 6th Street between SW 5th Avenue and University Avenue. Other components include reconstructing existing sidewalks in compliance with current width and side slope requirements, adding concrete curb and gutter in areas that currently have roadside drainage, landscaping improvements including low impact development techniques, a large stormwater pipe upgrade, and a proposed roundabout at the intersection of SW 6th Street and 4th Avenue.
Proposed Schedule: The project was bid out in the summer of 2017 and Florida Safety Contractors, Inc. was determined to be the lowest responsible, responsive bidder as stipulated by the City’s competitive bidding process. Construction is anticipated to begin in November of 2017 and complete in the fall of 2018.
Project Update: Construction was completed in November 2018.
