Work on the Charlottetown bypass highway multi-use path cost a bit more than originally thought.
Last April, the city awarded the design and engineering for all phases of the project to CBCL in the amount of $69,000 plus taxes. A paved path extends from Murchison Lane (Queen Elizabeth Hospital up to St. Peters Road and eventually will link up to Mount Edward Road).
A few changes to the scope were made and CBCL requested additional funds that were not included in the original request for proposals.
Changes included routing, using different lighting options, co-ordinating with the city’s fibre optic contractor and berm raising design.
The cost overruns amount to $46,360 plus tax, which is eligible under the approved funding the city secured through the P.E.I. Active Transportation Fund. That fund covers more than half the design and engineering work.
