The final plans for the first phase of the North Center Point Road / Emmons Street / Robins Road Intersection Project have been completed and the project has been advertised for bids. The contract is a utility bid package that will include water main and sewer relocation and the construction of the extension of “A” Avenue. This will be the first phase that will also allow the private utility companies to relocate their overhead utility lines to the underground conduit included in the City contract. Phase II of the project is scheduled for construction later this year.
The intersection reconstruction project will move the intersection approximately 100 feet to the northwest. The existing traffic signals will be removed and replaced with an “all way four way stop” condition while the project takes place. Plans call for changing traffic conditions which will include lane closures, lane changes and detours. Traffic will always be maintained on North Center Point Road, however, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
