Body

I.                     SUMMARY

On April 21, 2020, the City Council approved the plans, specifications and estimates (PS&E) for Project No. 1393-3: Citywide Annual Overlay Program, and Project No. 1411-3: Citywide Annual Concrete Replacement Program. These projects include the improvement of Victoria Street from Figueroa to Avalon, and various streets within the adjacent zones (Exhibit No. 1). To maximize economies of scale, these two projects have been combined, with a total cost estimate of $1,500,000.00.

The project was advertised for construction bids and on June 9, 2020, and seven bids were received and opened by the City Clerk. However, at its meeting on August 18, 2020, the City Council approved Agenda Item No. 13 rejecting all bids due to bid irregularities and staff was authorized to re-advertise the project.

The project was re-advertised in a newspaper of local circulation and through the PlanetBids portal from September 24, 2020 to October 15, 2020. Seven bids were received and opened at the City Clerk’s Office. It was determined that All American Asphalt, Inc. was the lowest responsive and responsible bidder, with a total bid amount of $1,440,375.00.

Staff is requesting City Council to award a Construction Contract to All American Asphalt, Inc. for a not-to-exceed amount of $1,440,375.00.

IV.                     BACKGROUND

At its meeting 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 Avenue. 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 project was advertised for construction bids and on June 9, 2020, seven bids were received. After the bid opening, a protest was filed by one of the bidders due to some bid irregularities. After consulting with the City Attorney, it was recommended that the project be re-advertised following City Council’s authorization.

At its meeting on August 18, 2020, the City Council approved Agenda Item No. 13 rejecting all bids, and authorized staff to re-advertise the project for construction bids. The Invitation for Bids (IFB) was advertised in a newspaper of local circulation and through the PlanetBids portal from September 24, 2020 to October 15, 2020. Seven bids were received and opened at the City Clerk’s Office.
