Submitted by: Engineering: John E. Stevenson/S. Gronlund

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the City of Brentwood to award a contract to Leighton Construction Inc. in the amount of $37,245.00 for the construction of roadway improvements at the end of Beverly Place and construct an asphalt sidewalk along Walnut Boulevard from the BART Park-N-Ride Lot to Central Boulevard, and authorize the City Manager to execute change orders up to 10% of the contract amount.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On September 26, 2000 by Resolution 2164, the City Council awarded a construction contract to American Asphalt Repair & Resurfacing Co. Inc. in the amount of $366,979.95 for the Base Bid, and Alternates A, B and D; to grant the City Manager authority to execute change orders up to 10% the contract amount; and authorize an increase in the budget by $400,000.

BACKGROUND
Beverly Lane Extension
Currently, the roadway improvements for Beverly Place do not go to the end of the street; it stops 100 feet short of it. The residents of Beverly Place have voiced concerns to the City that this dirt roadway section has created a nuisance of dust and mud when vehicles, including the City garbage trucks, must turn around at the end of the street. Authorizing this contract will provide the residents with a paved roadway eliminating these nuisances. Three estimates were received and Leighton Construction Inc. was the lowest at $24,235. Including a 10% contingency fund, the total expenditure for this work will be $26,658.50. This roadway improvement work can be funded from the Pavement Management Program (CIP No. 336-3083 00/01) fund.

Walnut Boulevard Sidewalk 
The construction of this temporary sidewalk will provide a pedestrian connection from the existing Walnut Boulevard sidewalk to the temporary sidewalk south of Central Boulevard. Upon completion of the future police station, a permanent sidewalk will be constructed at that time. Three estimates were received and Leighton Construction Inc. was the lowest at $13,010. Including a 10% contingency fund, the total expenditure for this work will be $14,311.00. Since this work is a temporary facility, roadway fees cannot be utilized; therefore, funding should come from the General Fund.

The following list shows the results of the submitted estimates:

Company Location Beverly Lane Extension Walnut Blvd. Sidewalk
Leighton Construction Byron $24,235 $13,010
McCullough Co. Antioch $27,895 $19,769
American Asphalt Hayward $39,375 $50,100
