Has anyone heard about the rebid on this project? I have not seen anything new.

From the 2-18-18 Transportation Committee's Minutes, where they recommended the Council reject the three high bids:
"Going forward, Metro Transit plans to consider scope changes to reduce the construction costs while not affecting the function of the new transit center. Meetings will be conducted with stakeholders to discuss the options before the project is rebid."


I don't see any mention of rebid in any council agendas up through the current month. So we'll just have to wait and see I guess.

I thought they were having to scale this project back because of a funding problem. Were they able to come up with the necessary funding through a different means? If not, what parts of the project were scaled back? I hope they still kept the proposed escalator entrance into the mall. It’s going to be so nice to be able to get inside the mall without having to walk across the street.

I believe they were able to get a lower bid by working with stakeholders.

According to this document they will still have the escalator directly into the mall.
