EDIT: City Council voted to approve the Advisory Committee’s ranking and approved the CPO to execute a contract with Southland Construction, Inc., in the amount of $8.714M at the May 9 Council Meeting.
Two companies have submitted design bids in response to the City of Orlando’s search for designs for the Colonial Pedestrian Overpass project – Southland Construction (Website) and Gibbs & Registry (Website).
The City will be considering the applications at the May 9 City Council meeting. As of right now, Southland Construction’s bid is leading in the bidding, and if Council approves, the Design-Build contract will be awarded to them.
If approved on May 9th, the next step would be for the contractor to get a Notice to Proceed issued by FDOT, which, according to the Mayor’s office, usually takes about a month. That puts the beginning of the design period in mid-July, and the process is generally a six-to-nine month process prior to construction starting. Construction is expected to take about 12-14 months, making 2018 the year when we will be able to pedal over the traffic on Colonial Drive.
