DISCUSSION:

Garden Acres Bridge is a six lane principal arterial on the City's Master Thoroughfare Plan with bike lanes on the City's Bike Fort Worth Plan.  The Garden Acres Bridge project includes the construction of an additional three lane bridge structure parallel and adjacent to the existing bridge.  The second bridge will provide additional capacity which will help to minimize congestion and traffic delays.  The project will also increase safety by providing protected left turn lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks and new traffic and pedestrian signals.  In conjunction with the new bridge there will be minor upgrades to the existing three lane bridge to increase its capacity.

Under Amendment No. 6, URS Corporation (URS) (n/k/a AECOM) will perform additional Construction Phase Services as necessary.  The table below recites the contract and amendment history.  URS proposes to complete Amendment No. 6 for a not-to-exceed amount of $44,784.00.  Staff considers this fee to be fair and reasonable for the additional scope of services.

Under an Advance Funding Agreement for construction Mayor and Council Communication (M&C C-27677), City Council authorized execution of an Agreement with TxDOT with City participation in the amount of $1,438,227.00.  Construction started on this project in January 2017 with estimated completion in August 2018.
