A Resolution to Authorize the County Administrator to Execute a Contract for the Route 605/602 Intersection Signalization and Turn Lane Improvements (Project Number 0605-030-354, C501; UPC Number: 79990)


Topic Description: 

The referenced VDOT revenue share project consists of turn lane improvements, signalization and some curb and gutter installation pursuant to the approved construction plan and profiles for this Route 605/602 intersection.  It represents one of two pending VDOT Revenue Share Projects associated with Auburn Middle School, the Brookside Community and the opening of Kettle Run High School and Greenville Elementary School.  All right-of-way and easements have been acquired and recorded.  Although it took longer than targeted, the wait was worth it, since NOVEC, Comcast and Verizon relocated all utilities at no charge to the County 

The Department of Community Development has properly advertised the project, conducted its required pre-bid conference and received bids by its advertised January 26, 2009 deadline.  The nine bids received ranged from $452,403 to $578,503; the County needs authorization to execute a contract with SW Rodgers Company, who presented the low responsible bid. The bids have been evaluated by a Committee including the County Procurement Office, County Engineer and a representative from McDonough Bolyard & Peck.  VDOT is issued the required authorization to award and proceed with the project.  Therefore, once the contract is finalized and executed, the County can immediately provide the contractor with the notice to proceed.
