SUBJECT:   Authorize the Temporary Closure of a 135-ft Section of Clifton Street beginning 275-ft North of Camp Bowie Blvd from February 13, 2019 to March 12, 2019 to Allow for the Installation of Two 16-in Thermal Water Lines Along and Across Clifton Street to Serve the University of North Texas Health Science Center (COUNCIL DISTRICT 7)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize the temporary closure of a 135 ft section of Clifton Street beginning 275-ft north of Camp Bowie Blvd from February 13, 2019 to March 12, 2019 to allow for the installation of two 16-in thermal water lines from the Interdisciplinary Research and Education Building along and across Clifton Street to a water storage vault to serve HVAC lines at the University of North Texas Health Science Center.

 
DISCUSSION:

JT Vaughn Construction, LLC, a general contractor working for UNTHSC is requesting the temporary closure of Clifton Street from February 13, 2019 to March 12, 2019 to install two 16-in thermal water lines along and across Clifton Street. These lines provide chilled water from the newly constructed Interdisciplinary Research and Education Building to a storage vault on the west side of Clifton providing chilled water to a network of HVAC lines on campus.

Clifton Street is a 28-ft wide street and this closure is necessary as installation of the lines require a 10-ft deep excavation across the width of the street necessitating the use of trench shoring devices therefore producing a large construction "footprint".  However, access to parking and administrative offices will not be affected.

Traffic control plans for the project have been accepted.

This temporary closure is in COUNCIL DISTRICT  7.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that this action will have no material effect on City funds.
