Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

Project No. 3-C-006-16 was authorized by Resolution No. 16-1015 on February 2, 2016 and re-authorized by Resolution No. 18-1069 on August 7, 2018.  This project will re-construct the intersection at 159th Street and Black Bob Road to include a traffic signal along with right and left turn lanes in all directions.  This project will also include storm sewer, curb and gutter, streetlights, and all other work necessary to complete the project.  Attachment A is a map of the project area.

 

Right-of-way and/or easements need to be acquired on 4 tracts of land for the project.

 

This resolution is the first step in the eminent domain process (Attachment B).

 

To keep the project on schedule, land acquisition needs to be completed by September 1, 2019.  Utility relocations are scheduled to start this fall and construction tentatively scheduled to begin in Fall 2020.  Staff is continuing to negotiate with the property owners to try to reach agreements to acquire the property before using the eminent domain process.
