Title

An Ordinance approving Change Order No. 1 to the agreement with Linaweaver Construction, Inc. for the Lea Drive Stormwater project, an increase of 21 calendar days to the Ward Road closure milestone date and overall project completion date. (PWC 9/13/21)

 

Body

Issue/Request:

An Ordinance approving Change Order No. 1 to the agreement with Linaweaver Construction, Inc. for the Lea Drive Stormwater project, an increase of 21 calendar days to the Ward Road closure milestone date and overall project completion date.

 

Key Issues:

                     The project required the closing of Ward Road to construct a triple cell box culvert.

                     The agreement required Ward Road to be back open to two-way traffic no later than August 23, 2021.

                     The lowering of gas mains on both sides of the of the project precluded the contractor from excavating for the box culvert.

                     The utility relocation was completed 21 days after the anticipated completion date.

 

Proposed Committee Motion:

I move to recommend to City Council approval of an Ordinance approving Change Order No. 1 to the agreement with Linaweaver Construction, Inc. for the Lea Drive Stormwater project, an increase of 21 calendar days to the Ward Road closure milestone date and overall project completion date.

 

Background:

Change Order No. 1 will address the actual time delay incurred by the contractor as a result of the gas main relocation.  Due to the size of the gas main, specialized pipe was required for its construction.  The gas company had begun relocation efforts and were on schedule for their relocation efforts.  When the specialized pipe was delivered, the wrong material was used in its construction and the gas utility had to reorder the pipe.  This resulted in a 21 calendar day delay in completing the relocation of the gas main.
