Subject:    Contract Award for ADA Curb Ramp Project
Presenter: Mark Palmer
Department: Public Works  

Information
Recommended Action
Authorize the City Manager to enter into a contract with Kelaye Concrete for the ADA curb ramp project in an amount not to exceed $42,820 plus applicable sales tax that is in a form approved by the City Attorney.
Background
The City solicited bids to replace and install new ADA accessible curb ramps at the intersections of: 7th Avenue SW at 9th Street SW and 5th Street NE at 7th Avenue NE. This project includes all associated demolition and restoration of sidewalk panels, sawcutting asphalt concrete pavement, sawcutting cement concrete sidewalk, sawcutting curb, and all other tasks necessary to complete the work. Three bids were received on August 15th. The lowest bid was Kelaye Concrete of Clackamas, Oregon in the total amount of $42,820.

The 7th Avenue SW and 9th Street SW location was identified for upgrade due to constituent concerns relayed in 2012. This is one of the only non-ADA compliant ramps on 7th Avenue SW and thus constitutes a break in continuity of access.

The 5th Street NE and 7th Avenue NE location was identified as a priority site for a marked crosswalk based on a traffic study. In order to have a marked crosswalk, the curb ramps at the intersection need to be upgraded.

These upgrades have both been previously approved by Council as a part of the 2013 budget for sidewalks.
