The Custer Avenue- Forrest Street to Old Potash Highway Roadway Rehabilitation; Project No. 2019-P-13 is for the improvement/rehabilitation of Custer Avenue. The proposal is to improve the ride/pavement condition along this stretch of existing concrete curb and gutter roadway. Initial ideas are full replacement of panels, concrete grinding, or an asphalt overlay.
On November 12, 2019, via Resolution No. 2019-341 Grand Island City Council approved an agreement with Olsson, Inc. for engineering services on a time and expense basis not to exceed $100,900.00. Such services will include a detailed topographic survey, traffic analysis, existing condition analysis, traffic projections, future conditions analysis and recommendations. Extensive geotechnical evaluation will also be completed as there is some concern about the condition of the soils below the surface. This information will help with the evaluation of solutions to improve the ride of the road and extend roadway life. Amendments will be required in the future for final engineering design and construction phase services.
