Germantown’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen has hired a contractor and management team for a project to extend Wolf River Boulevard. The board hired Acuff Enterprises/Scott Contractors for $18.7 million, much lower than the original estimate of $25 million. Smith Seckman and Reid, Inc. has been hired to manage and inspect the project at a cost of $2.9 million.
Construction is expected to begin in March and would connect Wolf River Boulevard between Farmington Boulevard and Kimbrough Road. The project involves adding about two miles of four-lane road with medians and native plantings and construction of several bridges is included. The City is working with Audubon International in developing the road in the environmentally-sensitive area along the Wolf River. “We will be working very closely with Audubon to adhere to their guidelines,” said Bob Joralemon chief construction inspector.
The City will take part in a pre-construction meeting and attend a safety course through TDOT in preparation for the project which is expected to take up to two years to complete.
