Executive Summary

Background

On March 24, 2019, the Board ratified the contract award of the Bear Creek Rd PM 4.99, 7.00, 7.26 2017 Storm Damage Repair project to the low bidder, ETIC Engineering, Inc., of Pleasant Hill, California, for $1,162,900.20.  The project consisted of a timber lagging soldier pile retaining wall, midwest guardrail system, reconstructed roadway, drainage improvements, and erosion control and re-vegetation.  These sites were damaged during the 2017 storm events.

 

Analysis

The final construction cost was higher than the bid amount by $13,183.28 due to material changes resulting from industry shortages, additional clearing and grubbing work, and minor quantity changes.  

 

Accepting the completed improvements and approving the final cost of construction will allow the recordation of the project and release all withheld retention.
