During a Nov. 9 City Council meeting, officials approved a nearly $2.76 million bid from Terra Path Construction to take the project reins.
City documents state Grand Avenue Parkway was reconstructed in 2017 from Viki Lynn Place to Picadilly Drive, but the project resulted in numerous pavement failures and distress areas.
"I'm hearing all kinds of complaints from people in the neighborhood about how terrible it is," Council Member David Rogers said of the state of Grand Avenue Parkway.
City staff said the contractor is motivated to begin as soon as possible, and completion is anticipated for the end of June.
An April 2019 evaluation identified pavement conditions and root causes of the failures, and subsequently, in March, the city contracted with engineering firm Kimley Horn to redesign that portion of Grand Avenue Parkway.
City information states the project will involve two separate phases as part of its traffic control plan, and access to adjacent properties and businesses will be maintained at all times.
Terra Path beat out five other companies for the project contract, including Austin Underground, which was the highest bidder at $3.19 million.
