The Bamore Road expansion project is going to cost the city of Rosenberg a little more than initially expected — $48,246 more, to be exact.

At Tuesday’s regular Rosenberg City Council meeting, council members will consider additional engineering services for a bridge design at Seabourne Creek.

In December, council hired engineering firm CivilCorp to complete the Bamore Road expansion project in the amount of $197,474.

A capital improvement project to extend Bamore Road was included in the 2017 Fort Bend County Mobility Bond issue.

This project will provide a two-lane concrete, curb and gutter roadway with sidewalk from the realigned intersection of Bamore Road near the U.S. 59 frontage road through Cottonwood subdivision to Stella Road.

City Manager John Maresh said construction would begin by February 2021.

According to city staff, this will complete the four-lane boulevard section for this major thoroughfare.

Fort Bend County has provided mobility bond funding of up to 50% of the eligible construction costs or $900,000, whichever is less.

The total project cost for engineering design and construction is estimated to be $2,486,550, and the city’s portion is estimated to be $1,586,550.

In other business, council members will consider canceling National Night Out, scheduled for Oct. 6.

City staff is recommending National Night Out activities be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, if National Night Out activities are not canceled, council will need to discuss postponing the Oct. 6 council meeting to accommodate the National Night Out activities.

The Zoom teleconference meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Citizens will not be allowed to attend council meetings, but can still ask questions via letters, telephone or email.
