The latest phase of approvals was $46,860 for additional scope in work being performed by RPS Infrastructure, a Houston-based engineering firm performing bid services, according to the meeting agenda packet. The project will align Robinson and Hanna roads.
RPS Engineering will complete the advertising and bid process for clearing, utility coordinating, construction bid advertising and several other elements of the Robinson Road project, according to meeting materials.
The construction project was originally slated to go out for bids in early 2023, but officials have said since late 2021 it could happen sooner.
In May, City Council approved acquiring a community center site via eminent domain for the project, and it approved $24,462 for right-of-way acquisitions.
When completed, the project could allow for additional future redevelopment in the area, officials have said. Audio and documentation of the council meetings is available on the city website.
