RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution accepting the work performed by Strange & Chalmers, Inc. for the Bicycle Ramps 2004 Project, CIP Project No. 522-5212, and direct the City Clerk to file a Notice of Completion with the County Recorder.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On January 28, 2003, City Council approved a resolution authorizing the submittal of a grant proposal to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) Fiscal Year 2003/2004 Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 Pedestrian/Bicycle Program for funding curb cuts in various locations throughout the City for safer bicycle travel.

On April 8, 2003, City Council approved a resolution approving a request to MTC for the allocation of FY 2003/2004 TDA Article 3 Pedestrian/Bicycle Project funding in the amount of $30,000 for the bicycle project.

BACKGROUND
The Bicycle Ramps 2004 Project provided for curb cuts for bicycle ramps at various locations to facilitate safer bicycle transition between Class 1 (off-street) bike paths and Class II (on-street) bike lanes. Design criteria in Chapter 1000 of the Caltrans Highway Design Manual, “Bikeway Planning and Design” were used to ensure that bicyclists would have a transition surface flush to the street.

Strange & Chalmers, Inc. was awarded a contract in the amount of $30,600 on May 6, 2004 in an informal bid process. The project was constructed within budget without contingencies and was completed June 24, 2004. The bicycle ramps were installed at nineteen locations to provide better access to Marsh Creek Regional Trail, Deer Creek Trail, Sand Creek Trail and the trail along the Union Pacific railway.


FISCAL IMPACT
A request for reimbursement in the amount of $30,000 has been submitted to MTC. The City’s share of the cost of the project is $500.00 and is budgeted through the Trails Project, CIP No. 522-5212.
