Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with Fields Excavating, Inc. for the Maize Road Area Water Line Improvements (including 8th Avenue Water Line Improvements) Project, Division of Water Contract Number 2048.

The purpose of this project is to construct necessary improvements to the water distribution system in the Maize Road area. The improvements identified in the scope of work will replace water lines that have high break histories and require frequent maintenance.

This project includes open-cut installation of approximately 940 linear feet of 6-inch water main, 9,200 linear feet of 8-inch water main, 4,400 linear feet of 12-inch water main and appurtenances, approximately 415 linear feet of 12-inch water main and appurtenances installed by horizontal directional drilling methods, and the replacement of 210 linear feet of 8-inch water main suspended from bridge crossings.

This project is in the “Downtown” and “North Linden” Community Planning Areas and includes the following streets: Maize Rd., Poling Ct., Reed Circle Dr., Loring Rd., Garden Rd., Wetmore Rd., Glenmawr Ave., N. 4th St., 8th Ave., and 2 bridge crossings near Goodale Ave. and I-670E.
