Resolution - A Resolution Approving an Amendment to the Contract for Design Services with Garver for the US 287 Frontage Road Utility Relocations and 30-Inch Water Line Project for an Amount Not to Exceed $120,000 (Utility Fund)

Requested Action
Consider a Resolution approving an amendment to the contract for design services with Garver for the US 287 Frontage Road Utility Relocations and 30-Inch Water Line Project for an amount not to exceed $120,000.

To accommodate this request, an accelerated timeline for the 30” water line was deemed necessary. Pipe material shortage and cost increases warranted the need for an alternative pipeline material market analysis to strategize an accelerated timeline for start of construction of the 30” water line. Additional subsurface utility exploration was included to reduce the risk associated with the expedited pipe procurement timeline and custom pipe order.

Garver also incorporated changes to the field conditions in the TxDOT right-of-way from the start of the project in March 2021 until the final design of the 30” water line in 2022.
