COLLEGE STATION, TX — The city council of College Station has voted to award a contract with Jones & Carter, Inc worth $458,400 for their Victoria Ave Rehabilitation project.
This contract fits into the $1,151,000 budget, currently reserved in the Streets Capital Improvement Project Fund; the likes of which, currently has $910,623.33 to pay for this upcoming project.
As stated by the city council, Jones & Carter, Inc will have until May of 2022 to complete all work related to this project.
Should it not be completed, the consultant will have to provide a 'Recovery Plan', outlining a new solution to resolve any issues. However, they will have to do so, at the City's approval, and at no additional cost to the City.
The 3,800 feet project will include the reconstruction of Victoria Avenue from FM 2154, to Woodlake Drive.
The existing asphalt road is intended to be replaced with a divided 2-lane concrete roadway, fitted with curb & gutter, expanded sidewalks, and new street lighting. Furthermore, two roundabouts, one at Creek Meadows, one at Woodlake, will be added. In doing so, drivers taking off from the Castlegate area on Victoria will now be forced to make a right turn and go north on Wellborn, as they approach the road.
As of Feb 10., there is no construction timeline. Additionally, the new Victoria Avenue will not be as wide as the existing street to help accommodate for the new 'shared walking path' being included
