The county’s project management division is fast-tracking the completion of design work for a road widening along Old Pasco Road, from Deedra Drive to north of Coyote Way Road.
The division’s anticipated letting day for the project is in February 2023, according to background material in the Pasco County Commission’s March 22 agenda packet.
In keeping with that goal, the county board approved a task order with Florida Design Consultants Inc. (FDC), to provide engineering services for the design, permitting and bidding support for the relocation of existing utility infrastructure in the county’s right of way that would be affected by the road-widening work.
The engineering inspections services during construction will be negotiated with FDC upon completion of the design, according to the agenda packet.
The county’s utilities engineering and contract management will join the contract management department to have the roadway contractor perform the utility relocation work as part of the project.
The estimated construction cost for the utility relocation work is slightly over $2 million.
The county has not determined a projected end date for the project’s completion, according to the agenda materials.
This item was approved as part of the county board’s consent agenda, meaning there was no public comment and it was included in a bundle of items that were approved in a single motion.
In other action, the county board:
- Approved a task order with Stroud Engineering Consultants Inc., in the amount of $191,193, relating to work involving utility relocations and adjustments on State Road 52, from east of U.S. 41 to west of Bellamy Brothers Road.
- Approved the award of a bid to Kloote Contracting Inc., the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder, for parking lot improvements at the Pasco County Animal Services Shelter. The amount is not to exceed $110,077, for fiscal year 2022. The amount includes $11,900 for a concrete dumpster pad.
