Contingent Funding Authorized for Route 13 Corridor Study

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The Legislature, without dissent (Legislators Mike Sigler and Amanda Champion were excused), approved use of$171,270 in contingency funds to support the cost of the 2020 New York State Route 13 Corridor Study.  As part of the 2019 Tompkins County budget process, $200,000 was set aside in the Contingent Fund for the purpose of preparing a traffic study focused on Route 13 from the Dryden Village to the intersection with Warren Road.

Authorized by the Legislature’s Facilities and Infrastructure Committee to issue a Request for Proposals and to award a contract for the corridor study, the Tompkins County Department of Planning and Sustainability, in conjunction with the Ithaca Tompkins County Transportation Council and the Route 13 Advisory Working Group, is prepared to award the contract to Barton & Loguidice, of Liverpool, NY, as lead consultant for the study, for a cost of $155,700.

The Legislature’s action allocates $171,270 from the Contingent Fund to the Department of Planning and Sustainability, the amount sufficient to implement the contract, including change orders not to exceed 10% of the cost.
