On Monday, Clr. Chad Collins stated at Public Works Committee that staff told him the cost of the Downtown Dedicated Bus Lane was “nearly a half-a-million” when the original budget was $300,000.
I followed up with Public Works General Manager Gerry Davis and staff.
This would represent a concerning amount over-budget.
Collins said today there was a human error that give him the budget line for the Cannon Bike Track. The Downtown Bus Lane and Cannon Bike Track have nearly identical budget line numbers.
Davis says the amount spent on implementing the bus lane is approximately $245,000.
