Columbia City Council to vote on $11.6 million road project

The Columbia City Council is scheduled to vote on an $11.6 million road project involving Scott Boulevard at Monday night’s meeting at City Hall.

The council will vote on a bill to authorize construction of the Scott Blvd. Phase 3 improvement project from Vawter School Road to Route KK. The council will call for bids through the purchasing division.

Phase 3 of the project includes construction of street pavement, a bridge, roundabout, sidewalks, storm drain inlets, and pipes, and water quality basins.

Staff is requesting the passage of an ordinance to acquire the remaining easements needed for the properties next to the proposed roundabout on Route KK and three other properties along the corridor.

The council is also scheduled to first read a bill Monday night that would authorize improvements to the MKT trailside building which is next to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at Battle Garden on Stadium Blvd. The council will also call for bids through the purchasing division as requested by the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.

Improvements include necessary ADA requirements, renovations to the restrooms on the first floor, and the upper level of the building to create rental space for people who want to use Battle Garden for weddings, receptions and other ceremonies.

The budget for that project is $100,000 with funding from the 2010 parks sales tax.
