City Commission agenda: Kasold contract up for approval

Bottom line:Commissioners will consider approving a $431,025 contract with Bartlett & West to design a rebuilding of Kasold Drive from Clinton Parkway to 31st Street.

Background:City commissioners are proposing to rebuild the section of street with money from the city’s new infrastructure sales tax. The design work will evaluate where new turn lanes should be installed on the street, and also will evaluate how traffic will be controlled during the construction process. That is expected to be a significant issue, since many neighborhoods have only a single access onto Kasold.
