Glade Road Project Bids To Be Opened March 3
The Glade Road project is currently out for bid and submitted bids will be opened at 2:00 p.m. on March 3.
Utility relocation continues in the area as private entities are relocating gas lines, fiber optics, and power lines and will continue to work through May 2020. As part of this effort, relocating overhead power lines underground is often desirable to address safety concerns and improve beautification in the area. With upcoming construction of the roundabout at the Glade Road/Riverwalk Drive intersection, overhead power lines will be relocated underground at that location and at the roundabout to be constructed at John McCain Road/Westcoat Drive. At just under $100k for each roundabout, the cost presents a challenge burying power lines along other more extensive areas of construction.
As a reminder, these contractors are not allowed to be on private property but are allowed on the City’s right of way. If you experience any issues with contractors on private property, please contact the City’s Public Works Department at 817.503.1090.
