CSX Construction Agreement for 9th Street East at 9th Avenue East


Contact and/or Presenter Information

Sia Mollanazar, P.E., Deputy Director - Engineering Services, Public Works Department, Ext. 7487

Action Requested
Authorization for the Chairman to execute the CSX Construction Agreement for 9th Street East at 9th Avenue East.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statute, Chapter 125, Section 125.01 - Powers and Duties

Background Discussion

This project will replace the existing railroad grade crossing on 9th Street East at 9th Avenue East.  This replacement will remove the existing tracks that currently cross 9th Street East and install a new platform (TUB) surface across 9th Street East, which will improve safety and smoothness of the railway crossing.  It will provide future savings to the County in maintenance costs by reducing asphalt patching in and around the crossing, which is otherwise routinely required at least four times a year.

The execution of this agreement will provide the funding to CSX to construct this project.
