At their March 28 meeting, the City Council approved a professional services agreement for engineering design services with Pacheco Koch Consulting Engineers, LLC, for design of the Iron Horse Boulevard West Reconstruction Project. This project will reconstruct Iron Horse from Rufe Snow Drive to Browning Drive. The existing roadway will be replaced with reinforced concrete pavement and sidewalks will be added. Following the engineering design work, the city will seek construction bids in 2023.
Plans are also underway for improving Iron Horse Boulevard east of Rufe Snow Drive. Halff Associates was hired in September for engineering design services for the eastern segment of Iron Horse. The City anticipates going out for construction bids on this segment later this year. The project includes replacing the existing roadway with reinforced concrete pavement from Rufe Snow Drive to York Street and adding sidewalks where they are currently missing. Based on the Vision 2030 Transportation Plan recommendation, the bulk of the roadway will be reduced to a two-lane configuration with a raised median. The Iron Horse Boulevard improvements are being funded by the 2020 Street Bond Program, along with a $4.2 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
