IV.                     BACKGROUND

On April 21, 2020, the City Council approved Agenda Item No.8, approving the PS&E, and authorizing staff to advertise the work and call for construction bids for Project No. 1393-3: Citywide Annual Overlay Program and Project No. 1411-3: Citywide Annual Concrete Replacement Program.

The Annual Overlay Program will improve Victoria Street from Figueroa Street to Avalon Boulevard and other various streets on adjacent zones. It consists of grinding two inches of existing asphalt pavement surface, removal and reconstruction of deteriorated roadway section, laying-down of AC leveling course and asphalt rubberized hot mix (ARHM), installation of pavement markings, re-striping, and other related work.  Victoria Street will have a new bike lane striped spanning from Figueroa Street to Avalon Boulevard.

The Annual Concrete Replacement Program will improve the conditions of various types of concrete along Victoria Street from Figueroa Street to Tamcliff Ave. The project consists of repair of damaged concrete pavement, sidewalks, driveway approaches, curbs and gutters, access curb ramps, and tree removals, restoration of concrete improvements to City standard, and compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

These projects are combined to maximize economies of scale while addressing sub-standard elements, maintenance issues, and ADA compliance. The locations were selected based on the 2017 Pavement Management Program (PMP), the 2017 Sidewalk Assessment Report (SAR), and the allocated budget.

The Purchasing Division advertised the projects for construction bids from May 21, 2020 to June 9, 2020; seven bids were received through PlanetBids and opened by the Purchasing Division Manager at the City Clerk’s office on June 9, 2020. The bid results are listed below:

Staff reviewed the bids and determined that the lowest responsive and responsible bid was submitted by RJ Noble Company, with a total bid in the amount of $1,479,975. RJ Noble Company is a bona fide contractor licensed by the State of California.  The bid bond, in the amount of 10% of the total bid, as supplied by Western Surety Company, a corporation of the State of South Dakota, is in order, and was submitted with the bid.  The contractor’s references have been checked, and it has been verified that the contractor has completed similar projects in an acceptable manner. It should also be noted that RJ Noble Company recently completed the last two Annual Pavement Overlay and Concrete Reconstruction Projects (Albertoni Project and Del Amo Project) with the City of Carson, both in a satisfactory manner.
