Several items on the consent agenda were unanimously approved by Columbia City Council members Tuesday night, including the new pedestrian crossing downtown.

The unanimous approval allows the city to put out a call for construction bids.

This project includes a new crosswalk connecting the northeast corner to the southeast corner of the Fourth Street and Broadway intersection.

It will also include a new sidewalk and parking configuration along the north side of Broadway. Plus, the westbound traffic lanes on Broadway between Fourth and Fifth streets will be reduced to a single lane.

The estimated total project cost is $278,000 including design, easement acquisition, utility relocation, and construction.

Construction is planned for the fall of 2021 or spring of 2022.

During the meeting, council members did not discuss parking for the Cherry Street Hotel or plans for taxiway improvements at the Columbia Regional Airport.
