Item Discussion

PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this item is to discuss and consider possible action to accept the low bid and authorize the City Manager to enter into a contract with Cal-Tex Interiors, in the amount of $65,182.00 to rehabilitate the sidewalks along the northbound lanes of Evers Road, from Huebner to Forest Dell, and to reconstruct the sidewalk bridge in the 7500 block of Huebner Road for the purpose of providing access to the Silo Park from Huebner Road, to comply with a mandate from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

 

In May of 2015, the City received a letter from the FHA regarding a complaint they received about the condition of the sidewalks along both sides of Evers Rd. These sidewalks were built by developers of adjacent subdivisions during the 1960’s and 1970’s and were not built to current ADA requirements. In addition, in some areas, there were no sidewalks present.

 

In an effort to address this complaint, a plan was implemented to phase these improvements. In FY 2015, as part of the Evers Rd. street improvement project, 39 ADA curb ramps were constructed on both the northbound and southbound lanes. The FY 2016 budget included $120,000 to replace sidewalks along the southbound lane of Evers Rd., which was completed. The FY 2017 budget includes $120,000 for replacing/installing sidewalks on the northbound side of Evers Road.

 

In addition to this project, the sidewalk bridge in the 7500 block of Huebner Road is also not ADA compliant, is in very poor condition, and blocks access to the new Silo Park. The rehabilitation of this small portion of sidewalk was included in this bid advertisement.

 

This project was designed by Sia Engineering. A bid package was developed and advertised, with the bids opened on May 30, 2017, with a total of 12 firms submitting bids.  They were:
