NorCo Council Gets Milides Parking Lot and Crosswalk Update
Council was updated on the project last night.
Bean Inc has been recommended as the general contractor, and Wind Gap Electric for the electrical work. This is the result of negotiations with both firms after two attempts to solicit bids were unsuccessful. This is because the project will require work to prevent continued subsidence down the side of a cliff along the southern edge.
According to Public Works Director Mike Emili, Michael Baker Internat'l has been engaged to do the engineering for the crosswalk. This part of the project is financed by a grant from the state Department of Community and Economic Development. It is expected to be similar to crosswalks used by Moravian students along Elizabeth Avenue in Bethlehem. The crossing will include pedestrian push button to trigger flashing lights and warn oncoming traffic.
