Sandy Springs OKs design contract for Dalrymple sidewalk

The Sandy Springs City Council has approved a $126,955 contract to design a sidewalk, six feet wide and 1,400 feet long, along Dalrymple Road from Princeton Way to Duncourtney Drive.

KCI Technologies Inc. submitted the second-lowest of five bids received by the city. Public Works Director Marty Martin recommended its proposal as “the most responsive and responsible,” declaring the lowest bid, $99,980, nonresponsive as “the bid schedule was manipulated and the pricing for geotechnical services was left out.”

Plans call for a sidewalk with a two-foot landscape buffer, retaining walls and a mid-block crossing from the north to south side of Dalrymple. KCI also will conduct a hydrology study for the road, including a storm drainage system; a traffic study to support the mid-block crossing; utility and right-of-way coordination; and post-design services including preparing bid documents.

When completed, the new sidewalk “will provide a complete pedestrian connection on Dalrymple Road from Roswell Road to Brandon Mill Road,” Martin said.
