Construction Management

Public Works - Downtown Redevelopment Project - Sept 2019

As a result of the rapid growth of the area, the City of Bowling Green has multiple capital improvement projects ongoing throughout the year. These projects include sidewalk and street construction as well as building and park construction.

FY24 Overlay Maintenance Program (2024-21)

Contract will be awarded to Scotty's Contracting & Stone LLC. Lone bidder for the amount of $2,368,920.77. Approximately 13 miles of city streets will be paved with this contract. Paving is estimated to begin in the spring.

Annual Street Resurfacing

College Street Pedestrian Bridge Rehabilitation (2023-22)

The College Street Pedestrian Bridge is located downtown in Riverfront Park and was completed in 1915. This historic truss bridge serves as a pedestrian bridge on the City's greenways network. In 2019, KYTC Bridge Inspection staff performed a bridge inspection that included an arm's length inspection of all non-redundant steel tension members as well as general inspection of the deck, superstructure, and substructure components. Recommended improvements and maintenance actions to various components of the structure were provided to the City.

While the deficiencies found do not pose an immediate threat to the overall stability of the bridge, inspection staff recommended the repair be made in the near future. Additionally, given the interest in developing Riverfront Park, it is anticipated that there will be more pedestrians utilizing the bridge in the near future.

FY2023 - An application was submitted and awarded for a Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant in the amount of $1,600,000. This funding is through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC). This grant program has an 80/20 federal to local match requirement resulting in $400,000 required by the City for this project.

Contractors have reached substantial completion, with remaining items including lower chord repairs and the tuck pointing of the stack-stoned Pier in Barren River. Due to water levels and current this work will not be able to be completed until March/April. The bridge has been opened to pedestrian usage. Caution is advised if the boat ramp is utilized due to concrete anchors and rip rap still being in the area, hidden by water.

Westen Street Intersection Improvements (2023-35)

This project will incorporate two roundabouts on Westen Street at the intersections of Patrick Way and at Ashley Circle. The work at Ashley Circle has been substantially completed with the focus now shifting to the Patrick Way location. It was decided to close down the intersection for this location with the intent to drastically shorten the duration of the project and impacts to the general public. Waterline relocation has been completed with the work now beginning on the new storm sewer infrastructure. This location is expected to be completed by the first of the year.

FY24 Sidewalk Repairs (2024-16)

This project includes the removal and replacement of approximately 1100 square yards of concrete sidewalk in the Housting Authority area. The project will include sawing, removing and replacing concrete sidewalk that is in disrepair.
