The Texas Department of Transportation hosted a pre-construction safety meeting Wednesday to discuss the US 60 Downtown Enhancement Project.
This project consists of removing and replacing concrete and storm sewers, placing brick sidewalks and street crossings, lighting, and landscaping. Enhancements will be made between 11th and 6th avenues on Buchanan Street, and on 6th Avenue from Fillmore Street to Pierce Street.
TxDOT representatives were joined by representatives from the City of Amarillo and PTP Transportation.
Ti-Zack Concrete Inc. was the successful low bidder at a construction cost $2.15-million. The project is expected to begin in February 2017 and be completed by June 2017 with a construction time of 95 working days.
