Rupple Road improvement progressing

Project a major part of ‘Mayor’s Box’ around city

Posted: December 18, 2017 at 1 a.m.

Traffic travels through the intersection of Rupple Road and Mount Comfort Road on Wednesday in Fayetteville. Crews will start next year on making a number of improvements to Rupple Road from Starry Night View to Mount Comfort Road.

FAYETTEVILLE — Pastor Dan Wooley has watched the confusion as drivers try to meander their way from one offset portion of Rupple Road to the other through Mount Comfort Road, which compounds during rush-hour traffic.

On the agenda

The City Council will consider two measures associated with the Rupple Road improvement project during its meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 219 at City Hall, 113 W. Mountain St.:

• A resolution to approve a supplemental agreement with Garver, designers of the Rupple Road project, for $307,167 to cover construction management costs, additional archaeological testing and mitigation and additional design services.

• A resolution to award a $5,574,726 contract with Cross-land Heavy Contractors to build a portion of Rupple Road from West Starry Night View to Mount Comfort Road, and approve a project contingency of $418,104.
