DOTD Report by Pat Landry: There are 64 total parcels they are acquiring for the CRDC Project. They have acquired 17 and have 22 in negotiations, and 22 others needing appraisals. Real estate is working on priority acquisitions at this time for the entire project. On the west side of US61, CenturyLink continues to work on finalizing their relocation. On the east side of US61, Demco, AT&T, and Cox are coordinating the design to incorporate construction features requested by USACE. Orx has completed the removal of their pipeline from the DOTD right of way, and ExxonMobil plans to tie in for the new pipeline by the middle of March. LA 964 continues in design with an anticipated bid date in early 2020. A designer has been selected for LA19 and LA67 and contractor selection is underway. They are working with and talking to Florida Gas. Florida Gas will have to do some relocation. The Corps has asked DOTD to do the bridge-work for the 964 bridge. They have a contract with an engineering firm and they are close to being complete with that. They should go to bid in the Spring on the 964 bridge. The Corps is doing the bridges on 61 and they should be bidding those out soon. The bridges at 19 and 67 are being done through a Construction Management at Risk process. This will deliver the product quicker by selecting an engineering firm to start with to get about 30% of the design done and then get a contractor to work with the engineering firm. This process should expedite those two bridges.
