Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into professional services contracts with Gannett Fleming Engineers & Architects in the amount of up to $500,000.00 for the Roadway - Westbourne Avenue Extension project.

The contract consists of preliminary engineering to examine potential alignments for an extension of Westbourne Avenue from Taylor Station Road to Brice Road North/McCormick Boulevard, and detailed design for a first phase anticipated to be from Taylor Station Road to Granite Pointe Drive. This new corridor is intended to enhance the area roadway network and add connectivity for all users. The $500,000.00 requested for this contract is the amount estimated to be needed for the completion of preliminary engineering for the project. A contract modification is planned to fund detail design of the first phase, and contract modifications may be needed if it is determined to proceed with detailed design of additional phases of the project. The amount needed for detail design of the first phase will not be known until preliminary engineering has been completed. An ordinance will be submitted requesting Council’s approval to fund detail design once that dollar amount is known.

The Department of Public Service solicited Requests for Proposals for the Roadway - Westbourne Ave Extension contract. The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services and Bonfire web sites from June 24, 2020, to July 22, 2020. The City received three proposals. All proposals were deemed responsive and were fully evaluated when the Evaluation Committee met on July 30, 2020. The responding firms were:
