The city of Plattsmouth directs an engineer to proceed with design and construction services associated with the state’s Highway 75 four-lane project that begins this year .
The action gives Olmsted and Perry Consulting Engineers the go ahead to start planning for utility relocation at Highway 75 and Oak Hill Road.
Existing water and sanitary sewer services will have to be relocated, said Steve Perry. It’s estimated that will cost $93,400. Per agreement, the state is to reimburse the city for 80% of the cost, leaving the city’s share at over $18,000 according to the Cassgram.
The city council also approved planning for a water main extension project in that same area. The projected cost is $51,000. When the road construction is underway, it will be a logical time for the extension, said Perry.
Responding to council’s questions, Perry said the water main extension could possibly qualify for some state reimbursement because it could be considered part of a utility relocation since a parallel sewer service line is also being moved.
