COLUMBUS, Ind.–The Columbus Board of Public Works and Safety met Tuesday and heard a request to approve a contract for utility coordination and right-of-way engineering for the Taylor Road project. Indianapolis-based engineering consulting firm, DLZ, was awarded the $479,895 agreement with the city. Federal dollars will cover 80 percent of the expenditure.
The project involves sidewalk improvements and other upgrades to Taylor Road, between Rocky Ford Road and 25th Street, and should commence in 2020.
The Board of Works had previously awarded DLZ the contract for $399,800, but the contractor has since returned with an amended estimate for their services.
