IV.                     BACKGROUND

On March 17, 2020, the City Council approved Item No.15, approving Project No. 1655: Carson Street Rehabilitation from Recreation Road to Santa Fe Ave. (the “Project”) as the City’s fourth SB-1 project for FY 2020-2021 funded by RMRA funds authorized by the California Transportation Commission (CTC).

SB-1 established new Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) funds which are allocated to the city every Fiscal Year. The city receives RMRA funding from the California Transportation Commission (CTC) every year; the amount varies from $1.5M to $2M each fiscal year.

Recipients of RMRA funding must comply with all relevant federal and state laws, regulations, policies, and procedures, and the City must satisfy the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) in the Fiscal Year.  That is, the City must expend on street and road general revenues, at least the average of the City’s Fiscal Year expenditures during FY 2009/10, FY 2010/11, and FY 2011/12.

On May 18, 2021, the City Council approved Item No. 3, approving the PS&E, and authorizing staff to advertise the work and call for construction bids for the Project. The Project consists of repair of damaged sidewalks, driveway approaches, curbs and gutters, access ramps, and tree removals and replacement. The required concrete improvements will repair and restore concrete to City standards and meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. This project also includes pavement overlay.

The Annual Overlay Program will improve Carson Street from Recreation Road to Santa Fe Avenue. The project consists of grinding two inches of existing asphalt pavement surface, removal and reconstruction of deteriorated roadway section, laying-down of asphalt concrete leveling course and asphalt rubberized hot mix (ARHM), installation of pavement markings, re-striping, and other related work.  Carson Street will have a new striped bike lane spanning from Recreation Road to Santa Fe Avenue.

The Annual Concrete Replacement Program will improve the conditions of various types of concrete along Carson Street from Recreation Road to Santa Fe Avenue. The project consists of the 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. They 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 August 3, 2021, six bids were received through PlanetBids and opened by the Purchasing Division Manager at the City Clerk’s office. The bid results are as listed below:
