City staff has approved that Coit be started ASAP. Has the city made an offer for the remaining ROW? Can you also tell us the current status of this project or expected timelines? Thanks.

Prior to the City making an offer we need to do some preliminary engineering to find out what we need for ROW and slope easements. Once this is complete the property has to be appraised because the City has to follow the guide lines set by the State on these matters. We have started the appraisal phase this week and hope to have that in hand in 4 – 6 weeks.


If you require further information please call me at 972-335-5585 ext. 129.

For this phase of Coit road construction is the intention to have 2 lanes in each direction from 121 to Main?

The intent of this phase of construction is to have 2 lanes in both directions from Main to SH 121 and left turn lanes. We are looking at constructing Rolator west of Coit and partial to the east.

Engineering is being done by RLK Engineering anticipated to be complete in April 2005. Right of way exhibits have been forwarded to the appraisal company. Once right of way is acquired, utilities will begin and are expected to take 6 weeks to complete. Construction is anticipated to being in June 2005 (dependent on ROW and utilities) and be complete in early 2006.

There was a 3/21 deadline for Lawler to decide on the offer? What happened. If ED is going to be needed.. is that immediate or a court process?

Thanks

Per Scott Young, Asst. City Manager:

The official requisite for a formal offer and response has passed. However, the City is continuing to try and reach a solution with Mr. Lawler, with continued meetings and dialogue. If we are unable to reach an agreement, then the city will move forward with condemnation. The condemnation process starts with the city filing a petition at the court. The court will then appoint 3 special commissioners who will hold a special commissioners hearing. At that hearing the commissioners will hear testimony regarding the fair market value of the property and will set a value to be awarded to the landowner. Once the city puts up the money with the court, then the city can take possession of the land. Either side if they don't agree with the value of the special commissioners can appeal that decision, it will then go back to the court for a full trial.

this is an abbreviated description of the process.

A total of seven (7) bids were opened on May 5, 2005, at 2:05 p.m. with Mario Sinacola & Sons Excavating, Inc., being the low bidder at $4,421,682.38. The engineer’s opinion of probable cost was $4,685,797.00.

Sinacola’s base bid was $3,820,552.89 and the engineer’s opinion of probable cost of the base bid was $3,972,767.00. Alternate 1 accounts for median irrigation. Sinacola’s Alternate 1 bid was $166,373.56 and the engineer’s opinion of probable cost of Alternate 1 was $221,585.00. Alternate 2 accounts for median lighting. Sinacola’s Alternate 2 bid was $434,755.93 and the engineer’s opinion of probable cost of Alternate 2 was $491,445.00. Staff is recommending that both Alternates be included in the Agreement in addition to the base bid.

Coit Road has two phases one is to build Coit north of College to help the traffic at the high school and the rest is in phase two.

Yes, the City has taken the ROW and is in the process of relocating the utilities. Phase I is progressing and paving is scheduled to start the week of July 25 if no other delays occur. The contract time on this project for phase I is to be complete prior to opening of school but due to utility relocations (SBC and Coserv) we anticipate this part of Coit to open late August or early September. Staff and the Mario Sinacola is trying to make time up in every way possible to have this important roadway open.

Thanks Paula for the post. The current Coit Road project will include a sidewalk from the high school site, extending approximately 1100 feet north on the west side of Coit, where it will tie in to the existing sidewalk. This will provide a continous sidewalk from the High School to Sheperds Hill. It is anticipated to be complete no later than February 2006, with the next phase of construction.

Thanks Brian for the post. There have been no unexpected issues found. In fact if drive Coit north of Rolater today you will see that the sidewalk construction has already begun. At this rate the contractor should have no problem completing the sidewalk ahead of schedule.

As for the construction of Phase 2, there is substantial work in progress. Trees have been removed and grading is commencing from Lebanon to College.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5585 ext. 127.

I have noticed all of the trees that were dug up alongside northbound Coit. Could there not have been a plan to have those trees relocated to developing neighborhoods in the area, like the Shepard Hills area? Perhaps a notice to citizens "Hey, we're digging up trees... $100 bucks and we'll replant it in your backyard?".

It just seems as though that's a big waste of trees when that's exactly what we need more of.

The trees removed from the Right-of-Way along Coit Road were all Hackberry trees. Hackberry trees are specifically excluded from being 'protected' trees per the City's Tree Ordinance.

When the new section of Coit is completed between College and Lebanon, will the "old" section be rebuilt? There are a lot of pavement failures occuring along this stretch.

Thanks Hulon,
Phase 2 will include lighting/irrigation for the entire length of Coit as mentioned in the bid listing above?

Also, at one point Council mentioned a turn lane when going S. on Coit onto Jereme. Is that still going in (doesnt look like enough room plus there is a sprinkler line on top of the ground..not sure who put it there).

Thanks

Correct, Phase 2 will provide irrigation and lighting along the entire length of the job.

Included in the construction of Phase 2 will be a southbound right turn lane installed on Coit Road at Jereme Trail. If you look at the screening wall along Coit Road at Jereme Trail you can see how it was constructed further away from Coit Road allowing room for the proposed turn lane.

Thanks Mr. Collins for the post. The contractor originally anticipated Coit Road north of Main to be opened by 2/7/06. Unfortunately conflicts with Southwestern Bell and TXU Electric have delayed the paving operations. As soon as the conflicts are adjusted by the appropriate utility company, the paving will commence. We anticipate the road will be opened north of Main Street sometime mid/late March 2006.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5585 ext. 127.

Coit from Lebanon north should be complete sometime mid/late March 2006 as well. Once complete, the current two way traffic traveling on the existing lanes of Coit from Jereme south to Lebanon will be relocated to the new north bound lanes of Coit so that the existing lanes can be removed and replaced.

Thanks Amelia for the post. The contractor still has quite a bit of work to complete on Main Street and on Coit north of Main Street prior to opening that stretch to traffic. It is estimated that the remaining work will be complete sometime late April and the road reopened to traffic at that time. For now, only the intersection is being improved. The remaining section of Coit north to Eldorado will remain gravel.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5585 ext. 127.

1. What is the status of Coit from Jereme to Warren? There has been no change in the last 30 days. The intersection at Jereme is still rock.

2. Why is Coit north of Main being developed yet the remaining section South of Main is not?

Thanks Brian for the post.

1. During the excavation of the existing lanes of Coit Road from Jereme to Lebanon, it was discovered that the storm sewer under that section of Coit was damaged. Our Public Works Department is currently investigating the extent of damage so that the pipe can be replaced before the road is repoured.

2. It was intended to have both the north and south sections of Coit constructed with the Coit Road Project. Unfortunately, the property owner on the southwest corner of Coit and Main has refused to work with the city in dedicating the right-of-way so that Coit south of Main can be developed.

The section of Coit Road north of Main Street was not included in the 2006 bond sale. Public Works will be placing asphalt over the existing road to help improve the roadway. This section of Coit Road has not been scheduled for construction at this time and is dependant on development occurring along it.

Any chance of increasing the speed limit on Coit between Main and Eldorado? The posted speed limit is 35 mph. I realize that stretch of Coit is gravel, but theres no homes, school zones, etc. Why the low posted speed limit? On Preston, the same stretch of road has a posted speed limit of 55 mph and it has residential side streets, businesses, and a church.

KJC,

While the roadways may appear to be the same, they are not. Coit has a much narrower width, the roadside is less forgiving, and the roadway surface is a chip seal over the gravel whereas Preston is asphalt.

Our trial runs have indicated that 35mph is a safe and prudent speed. We will be conducting a new speed study along this stretch next spring. That new study may or may not result in a change.

Thanks
