This answer pretty much defines the process for any road selected for rebuild. As an example we will use Reno Avenue. The section of Reno between Hiwassee & Henney needs to be rebuilt and the section of Reno between Henney & Choctaw Road needs to be rebuilt. Each of these road sections will get sidewalks, curb, and guttering attention as well. It’s difficult to estimate a timeline right now because before the first shovel of dirt gets turned the City must go through a series of steps. Below is a list of some of those items:
- Gain approval of the bond and tax measures to generate income streams
- Secure the funding through financing based upon the new income stream(s)
- Send out Requests For Proposals (RFPs)
- Evaluate the RFPs
- Prioritize work and look for efficiencies (e.g. combining road sections for a cheaper overall cost)
- Award contracts
With that in mind, as a rough guess we might be able to start awarding contracts in the late-summer-2020 time frame, but that is only an estimate.
