At their meeting Tuesday evening, the Buffalo City Council approved a second Resolution, No. 1348, authorizing a grant application to the State Lands and Investments Board (SLIB) for a reworking of South Burritt Street in the area of old High School Hill and the elementary and middle schools.
Mayor Randy Dyess explains more.
The project was the top priority on the list from the original SW Quadrant Infrastructure Project from last year.
If funding is approved, the project could happen as soon as Fiscal Year 2013.
The project, if funded, would shave 40,000 cubic yards of material off of High School Hill, essentially lowering the roadway eight to ten feet and making a more sight-friendly slope, add curb and gutter, re-align and improve the intersections near Clear Creek Middle School, and pave Burritt/ to Cemetery Road.
The estimated total cost of the project is $1,983,102 and the city is going after a 50/50 match grant, which their share of costs would be $991,551 if the grant is awarded to the city.
