BACKGROUND

On August 18, 2016, staff received construction bids for the Street Rehabilitation Project FY 2015-2016 (ST162).  The project included the approved Streets Committee locations of Pipeline Avenue (Edison Avenue to Eucalyptus Avenue), Ramona Avenue (Philadelphia Avenue to Victoria Street) and Riverside Drive (Central Avenue to Oaks Avenue).  The project improvements include: 1) street grinding and overlay; 2) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps & transitions; 3) curb & gutter; 4) cross gutter;  and 5) sidewalk repairs.

The project was awarded for construction, originally, with approved ADA standards for ramp construction. Since then, staff has implemented the designing of custom ADA and sidewalk improvements for the purpose of improving and refining the construction of these components.  Caltrans permits are currently being processed for the installation of the eight (8) custom designed ADA ramps at Ramona Avenue and the 60 Freeway.

As part of the Street Rehabilitation Project FY 2015-2016, staff advertised a Request for Proposal (RFP) on March 31, 2017 for Engineering and Design Services for various improvements associated with the project, including 86 ADA ramps and 10,000 square feet of sidewalks.

On April 20, 2017 staff received nine (9) proposals from design consultants which were evaluated and scored by the evaluation committee.  Evaluation of the top four (4) ranked firms are as follows:
