Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The citywide street program was approved in the 2013 Bond election. Projects in this program could include: mill & overlay of pavement, curb repair/replacement, sidewalk repairs, and concrete diamonds around meter boxes and manholes. On August 28, 2017 the City Council approved a Memorandum of Understanding with New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) for the issuance of joint solicitations and administration of roadway and utilities projects.

 

Post Road Reconstruction Project was jointly bid with NBU and designed by Pawelek & Moy Engineering. The project includes a new water main line down Post from Gruene Road to the IH 35 Frontage Road. The road part of the work includes complete excavation of the road down, lime stabilization of subgrade, flex base, black base and an overlay from Sagebrook Drive to IH 35 Frontage Road.

 

The joint solicitation for Post Road was issued on October 3, 2017. A total of eight proposals were received on October 31, 2017. Each submission was scored by City and NBU staff based on cost, relevant experience, schedule, and financial capacity.  The proposals received ranged in price from $897,506 to $1,424,285.

 

Based on these criteria, Denbow Company Inc. was selected as the best value bidder for both the City and NBU. Denbow submitted a bid of $483,169 for Roadway Improvements and $414,337 for Utility Improvements. The total for the joint improvements Project is $897,506. The addition of contingency funding brings the amount for Roadway Improvements to $516,990.
