The Bryan Road reconstruction project is costing a little more than expected. At the Rosenberg City Council meeting Tuesday, council members will consider making a final change order to the construction contract with Hurtado Construction Co. for the Bryan Road reconstruction project in the amount of $75,027.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 2110 Fourth St.

According to city staff, the final change order is necessary to reconcile the final quantities for bid items that had to be adjusted to fit field conditions. Council approved the $9 million road reconstruction contract for Bryan/ Spacek Road in 2017. Funding for this multi-million dollar project will include money from previously issued certificates of obligation and Fort Bend County mobility funds from 2007 and 2013.

The county is agreeing to pay up to 50 percent of eligible construction costs for the roadway, drainage facilities, utility line conflicts, traffic control devices and sidewalk and construction phase inspection services. The county will also reimburse the city for 100 percent of the right-of-way acquisition, up to a maximum of $1 million.

According to city staff, the county’s maximum contribution shall not exceed $6,768,392. Spacek Road will be reconstructed from Bryan Road to south of Herbie Drive.

The improvements will transform the existing two-lane asphalt road with open ditches into a four-lane, concrete curband-gutter roadway with raised center medians, a sidewalk and an underground storm drainage system.

Council members will also consider approving the Parks and Recreation Master Plan update. According to city staff, the goal of the master plan update is to focus on updating park zones and community input.

The primary objective of the proposed master plan is to develop a holistic approach that allows the city to address urgent needs as well as plan for future needs. Audience members who wish to speak must sign up in advance.

Citizens are given one opportunity to speak per meeting, either in general comments or commenting on a specific agenda item.
