At their meeting on December 16, 2013, the City Commission approved the Wabash Avenue Extension PD&E Study Team’s recommendation to proceed with the Preferred Build Alternative. City staff has begun the process to select an engineering consultant to prepare construction plans for the extension of Wabash Avenue from Ariana Street to Harden Boulevard south of the Polk Parkway. On February 28, 2014, the City received five (5) responses to its Request for Qualifications from interested engineering consultants. City staff will recommend a shortlist of firms to the City Commission for approval at the April 7, 2014 City Commission meeting. Upon approval of the shortlist, the selection committee will begin the interview phase of the selection process. A final recommendation and contract will be presented for City Commission approval in June 2014.
