100% of Bond 2020 Street Projects in Design Ahead of Schedule

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – In less than a year since voters approved the Bond 2020 Program, the City has executed 100% of the design contracts for all 22 street projects. On March 16, 2021, Mayor and City Council authorized a new competitive mass selection process to negotiate and execute contracts for Civil Engineering Services for all Bond 2020 Streets projects. After a rigorous evaluation process, nine engineering consultants from Corpus Christi were selected to complete the design of the Bond 2020 Streets projects.

The City anticipated 75% of the street projects to be under design by July 2021 and all Bond 2020 street projects were expected to be in design by February 2022. However, all 22 contracts are now executed putting the City five months ahead of schedule. This is a major accomplishment in the City’s bond program delivery and reverses prior business practices that included lengthy timelines for bond program completion.

Through this new process, City staff have spent less time on executing design contracts for the Bond 2020 street projects allowing faster execution of projects and significant cost savings to the taxpayer.
