ENGINEERING/STREETS/TRAFFIC CONTROL/John Krywicki, Director
Engineering Department:
* Kickapoo Street Widening Project (from MacArthur Street to Kickapoo Spur)
> ODOT and EST, Inc. indicate they have completed the Kickapoo design plans and right-of-way plans. ODOT has scheduled a meeting with City officials on April 27, 2012 to go over in detail what ODOT now says is needed for the road project to move forward. The City had previously acquired all right-of-way parcels based on what ODOT and their previous engineering firm (Clour Engineering) had directed the City to do, but, apparently some of that work was in error, due to closure errors. The City will learn more details when the April 27th meeting is held, but, it appears there may be minor issues with legal descriptions of several of the parcels that will need to be addressed. ODOT has indicated that efforts are still proceeding towards letting the project in June 2012.
* Harrison Street Median Landscaping Project (Median just south of I-40 and north of Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech entrance)
> Concrete removed and installation of raised stamped concrete border, backfilled with suitable soil and then landscaped with a variety of bushes and ornamental plantings.

* Gordon Cooper Bridge (southbound lanes)
> The City and Citizen Potawatomi Nation (CPN) have entered into an Agreement to provide funding to repair and resurface the bridge deck for the southbound two lanes of the bridge.
