About the Project
The City of Sandusky adopted the Bicentennial Comprehensive Plan which proclaimed a desire to reconstruct Shoreline Drive. In 2016, the City entered into a Professional Services agreement with Osborn Engineering and City Architecture to engage the public throughout a lengthy conceptual planning and design process. The final conceptual plan was supported by Sandusky City Planning Commission and accepted by Sandusky City Commission.
In December 2017, the City entered into a Professional Services agreement with Osborn Engineering and City Architecture to complete the preliminary design process as the criteria engineer in accordance with the Design-Build process described in the Ohio Revised Code. Drawings were designed to over 40% complete and a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued for eligible Design-Build Teams (DBT). With that, our Design-Build Team was selected as the “best value” Proposer out of the final four teams who short listed.
The project encompasses the narrowing of the roadway while maintaining on-street parking, widening of sidewalks, installation of a bicycle lane, upgrading utilities and burying most of these lines underneath the roadway and introducing traffic-calming measures near Shoreline Park. Construction activity on this project started in early May of 2019 and is expected to be complete prior to May 2020.
