Traffic counts conducted by the City of Delta last fall reveal that passenger cars make up 52 percent of the traffic on Confluence Drive.
Traffic was counted along the route during a one-week period.
Traffic counters on Confluence Drive -- the city's alternate truck route -- have been tallying how many vehicles are using that route. At a recent city council meeting, utilities/public works director Steve Glammeyer said the traffic counters are spaced in a way that also indicates the type of vehicles on the roadway.
Stantec Consulting Services and the City of Delta have mutually agreed to drop claims and counterclaims surrounding design work on the city's alternate truck route.
The city filed civil action in August 2015, claiming project deficiencies cost the city time and money.
A day of mediation has been set in an attempt to settle a dispute between the City of Delta and Stantec, the firm that designed the alternate truck route. The city alleges that design flaws caused construction costs to escalate and is seeking damages through a civil complaint.
The City of Delta has filed a claim against Stantec, the firm that designed the alternate truck route, alleging design flaws caused construction costs to escalate.
In a letter written last summer to Stantec's corporate counsel, city attorney David McConaughy said, "Reflective of those failures, Hamon's construction costs associated with the project went from an original budgeted amount of $18 million to approximately $22.4 million, a difference of almost $4.4 million."
The county commissioners explained on Monday they believe the City of Delta is the jurisdiction that should be "leading the discussion" on having CDOT assume some $22 million in outstanding debt and take over ownership of Delta's new alternate truck route.
District 1 Commissioner Doug Atchley explained the truck route "is in the City of Delta and its citizens approved a bond to pay for it. It is a City of Delta indebtedness."
