Consideration to Award the Bid for the 2017 Capital Improvement Project Phase II Reconstruction Project
The Bid Opening for the 2017 CIP Phase II Reconstruction Project was held on February 28, 2019. Two Bids were received for the Project, with Bid Alternatives for surfacing and water line installation across Flaming Gorge at North 5th East. The apparent low base bid is from Longhorn Construction in the amount of $273,694.98. The project includes water line installation in North 5th East from the north side of Flaming Gorge to the Alley to the South, drainage system improvements and surfacing for North 5th East, water line work in North 3rd East, and drainage system improvements and surfacing for Railroad Avenue.
Bid Alternate A is for concrete pavement and Bid Alternate B is for asphaltic pavement. We are recommending the concrete option due to its comparable costs and reduced maintenance costs over the life of the road.
Bid Alternates C & D are for water line installation under Flaming Gorge Way, Bid Alt C by boring methods and Bid Alt D by open cut methods. We are recommending the boring option due to limiting surface disturbance and lessening the impairment to traffic.
Awarding the Base Bid with Bid Alternatives A & C, results in a total Contract Amount of $456,344.98.
Suggested Motion: I move to award the 2017 Capital Improvement Project Phase II Reconstruction Project, including the Base Bid, Bid Alternative A and Bid Alternative C, to Longhorn Construction, Inc., in the amount of $456,344.98, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement.
