M&C Review


COUNCIL ACTION:  Approved on 6/12/2018 

DATE: 6/12/2018 REFERENCE NO.: **G-19303 LOG NAME: 20TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF EVANS AVE AT EAST BERRY STREET
CODE: G TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:   Authorize Two Temporary Closures of Evans Avenue at East Berry Street Beginning June 13, 2018 Through July 19, 2018 for Intersection Reconstruction and Upgrades to Signalization (COUNCIL DISTRICT 8)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize two consecutive temporary 18 day closures of Evans Avenue at the intersection with East Berry Street beginning June 13, 2018 through July 19, 2018 to allow for a complete 36 day intersection concrete pavement reconstruction.

 
DISCUSSION:

Bean Electrical requests two 18 day temporary closures of Evans Avenue at its intersection with East Berry Street to reconstruct the concrete pavement in the intersection for a total of 36 days beginning June 13, 2018 through July 19, 2018. Additional improvements will be constructed outside of this closure period including ADA ramps, new sidewalk, pavement striping, and upgrades to intersection signalization.

This intersection pavement reconstruction project is divided into two construction phases, north and south, of 18 days each.  Staff indicates that this option is preferable as it not only reduces construction time from the initial five phased project, but it also provides less impact on East Berry Street traffic operations.  Also, this will allow the sequencing and tie in of a separate repaving project of Evans Avenue from East Berry Street to East Rosedale Street.

Traffic control plans for the project have been accepted and the City of Fort Worth staff will coordinate with local businesses and neighborhood services.

This project is in COUNCIL DISTRICT 8.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:
