The Marco Island City Council approved Monday up to $458,881 in sidewalk and drainage improvements.
The four purchase orders approved are to survey and design shared-used pathways on Bald Eagle Drive, Inlet Drive and San Marco Road as well as drainage on a residential area near Residents' Beach.
The most expensive purchase order is the survey and design of the "Inlet Drive Shared Use Pathway Project," in an amount not to exceed $135,700. The proposed project consists of the construction of an 8-foot wide concrete shared pathway, approximately 3,560 feet long, according to the professional services proposal submitted by Hole Montes, a Naples based company.
"The pathway would be located on the east side of Inlet Drive beginning at the south side of Travida Terrace," according to the proposal. "It is to continue south to Addison Court. At Addison Court, the pathway will continue eastward on the south side to the existing pathway at Otter Mound Historical Park.
"The second most expensive purchase order is the survey and design of the San Marco Road drainage improvements project, in an amount not to exceed $124,980. The project area encompasses the areas along Buttercup Court, Manor Court, Greenbrier Street and Wintergreen Court, according to the letter agreement submitted by Kimley-Horn, a planning and design consultant with offices in Fort Myers.
"The area is primarily single-family residences along local roads with open drainage," the letter states. "The project intent is to improve drainage functions along with providing a water quality enhancement."
Another purchase order that passes the $100,000 mark consists of a topographic mapping of the existing unpaved portion of the southerly right of way of San Marco Road, from approximately 400 feet of Vintage Bay Drive, to the existing share use pathway on Goodland Road, according to the survey proposal submitted by Atkins North America, a design, engineering and project management consultant with offices in Fort Myers. The proposed improvements will consist of an 8 or 10-foot-wide concrete shared use pathway of approximately 7,234 feet long.
The purchase orders were approved unanimously without debate as part of the consent agenda.
