May 19, 2020: The initial concept designs and cost estimates have been submitted to the City of College Park for their review. After receiving comments from the city, the consultant will revise the final conceptual plans, five-year CIP (Capital Improvement Plan), reports, and cost estimates. The project is scheduled to be completed in August 2020.
This project will lead to the implementation of the City of College Park Complete and Green Streets policies. The project will address sidewalks, bicycle infrastructure, stormwater best management practices and street trees. Cost estimates will also be provided.
Background: The city council formally adopted a Complete & Green Streets Policy on April 12, 2016. This policy established the goal of creating a citywide network of roadways that provide safe access for all users. Staff in the city’s departments of planning and engineering have worked since that time to study existing conditions and programs and identify priority streets across the city. Implementation has been stalled due to lack of city resources – staff and funding. Once the city has preliminary designs and cost estimates furnished via this PAMC project, applying for grants, developing final design, and then advancing to construction will be much more achievable.
