Columbus considering improvements to 25th Street intersections

The city of Columbus is looking at bids of up to half a million dollars to improve pedestrian crossings on 25th Street.

According to the city engineer’s office, the project would improve the intersections at 25th Street and Home Avenue, 25th and Maple Street, 25th and Central Avenue and 25th and Taylor Road. It would add push-button pedestrian signals at those locations.

Dave O’ Mara Contractors submitted a bid of just over $392,000  and Milestone Contractors submitted a bid of about $516,000.

The Board of Public Works and Safety opened the bids for the project Tuesday morning and took them under advisement.
