The bid package for the capital improvement project, which is designed by WRNS, was released for public bid Jan. 12, and construction is expected to begin in March. Bids for 2012 Western Sector Park Development Plan Capitol Improvement Project are due Feb. 24.

The corporation will then analyze the bids and select a contractor in approximately two weeks (around March 12-13), according to spokeswoman Maryann Marino. Construction is scheduled to start in late March.

Construction components include four soccer fields (two lighted), four full basketball courts, a new restroom and operations facility building, jogging trail, water features and a sophisticated storm water capture re-use system. The Visitor’s Center Pavilion is approximately 5,000 sq ft in size and will feature a large lobby, restroom facilities, concession area, exhibition areas and office space.

Site work for the project includes demolition, clearing, trenching, grading; installation of underground utilities and drainage improvements; and installation of electrical equipment and lighting. It also includes support systems for the future electronic security system; laying of asphalt and concrete; installation of fencing; planting and establishing landscaping; and installation of irrigation systems.
