Old Lynchburg Road Safety, Sidewalks and Drainage Update

From Tony Edwards, City Engineer:

A “Welcome to the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood” sign has been approved and will be ordered soon for the Azalea Park city limits area. It will have the same look as the one installed near the Jefferson Park Avenue Bridge. Fabrication and installation of the sign is currently at 4 to 8 weeks.  The location will be staked out in the next couple of weeks for review and any potential utility conflicts. 
The final scope for the identified work items are being placed in a Task Order for bid in the next couple of weeks. The bids will be reviewed for acceptance and with weather permitting the work should soon after the preconstruction meeting. 
All remaining new tree work will be provided by Snow’s Nursery this spring.
