Council Tables Resolution to Terminate Agreement

A vote to terminate an agreement for the design of the Brush College Road Overpass was tabled by the Decatur City Council Monday night so that council members can gather more information on the project and future options.

The engineering services agreement with AECOM technical services is to prepare final design plans and bid documents for a proposed bridge over the Norfolk Southern Rail yard south of Faries Parkway. The resolution to terminate the agreement was not a reflection on the quality of work from AECOM but came in an attempt to reallocate agreement funding to other priorities for future improvements along Brush College Road to be more competitive for future federal grant funding.
