Project Notes

NotePosted On
12/17/12 -
Oct, 2013 - Receive Notice To Proceed from TDOT to acquire ROW.
Nov, 2013-Mar, 2014 - Acquire ROW and easements; adjust utilities if needed.
Apr, 2014 - Receive Notice To Proceed from TDOT to advertise for construction.
May, 2014 - Award contract for construction.
May, 2014-Dec 2014 - Complete construction and closeout.

The project will be managed by the City’s Public Works Department and Engineering Consultant. All contracts (engineering, ROW acquisition and construction) will include schedules with milestones and dates. One of the main criteria in choosing the engineering consultant will be performance and proven knowledge of TDOT requirements and track record in working with TDOT.

The City has successfully managed the following projects:

1. Indian Lake Boulevard at 386 Bridge widening, ramps, signals.
2. New Shackle Island Road
3. Traffic Signal Upgrade
4. ARRA Projects

While the City experienced some difficulty in getting through the TDOT process, once a Notice To Proceed with construction was received, the projects were completed on time and within budget.
