Jordan Road/Newlin Gulch Improvements Contract
Town Council awarded a professional services agreement in the amount of $584,109 to Felsburg Holt and Ullevig for the final design of the Jordan Road/Newlin Gulch Improvement Project (Lincoln Avenue to Stonegate Parkway). This project proposes to extend existing acceleration/deceleration lanes, add sidewalks, and extend left-hand turn lanes. Due to the proximity of the Jordan/Newlin Gulch Bridge, this bridge must be widened to make operational improvements. The project will include the addition of a sidewalk on the west side of Jordan Road that does not exist today. This sidewalk will help facilitate access to the Town’s parks, trails, recreation amenities and activities. Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2024/2025. The intent is to construct this project simultaneously with the Lincoln Avenue Widening Project using separate bid schedules and one contractor for economy of scale purposes.
