With the plans for the 13th Street renovation currently at 85 percent, Infrastructure Director Byron Landfair and Smith Engineering Project Engineer Scott Hicks anticipate 100 percent completion in the next few weeks, following a presentation to the Artesia City Council at the next council meeting.
“The design is certainly on schedule,” Hicks said. “We started in early August, and we had a projected design schedule of about eight months, so we’re on track with that. Bids will probably go out within the next month or two, and construction can be expected to begin in early summer.” … For the rest of the story, subscribe in print and on the web.
As Hicks explained, having the plans at 85 percent means that the major design schematics, like the new water lines, sanitary sewer lines, roadway improvement plan and traffic control plan, are all shown. If any changes are to be made to the plans in the coming weeks, Hicks anticipates them to be “minor.”
