Proposed City Council Motion:

FIRST MOTION: I move for a second reading of an Ordinance awarding the bid for Project No. 438-2 for the Water Main Replacement FY21 - Highway 350 Crossing from Pryor Road to Blue Pkwy Project to Wiedenmann, Inc. in the amount of $398,706.00 and authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement for the same.

Background:

This water main project entails replacing an existing 6-inch water main crossing under 350 Highway from NW Pryor Road to NW Blue Pkwy with a new 12-inch main.  The project was originally included in the Water Main Replacement FY21 project (Project No. 438-1) but was bid separately to allow additional time for survey and design.  After bidding Project No. 438-1 the remaining project budget is $994,463.00.  Based on review by City staff, it is our recommendation to award the construction contract for Water Main Replacement FY21 - Highway 350 Crossing from Pryor Road to Blue Pkwy Project to Wiedenmann, Inc.

 

 

 

Impact/Analysis:

Public Works Engineering advertised for bids for Project No. 438-2 on September 1, 2021.  Potential bidders were notified through QuestCDN and on the City website.  Four (4) responsive bids were received by the September 28, 2021, bid opening date.  Public Works Engineering and Water Utilities staff reviewed the bids and Wiedenmann, Inc. was determined to be the lowest and most responsive bidder.

 

 

 

Timeline:

Estimated construction start date: December 1, 2021 with 90 calendar days to substantial completion (120 calendar days for final completion)
