Contract Award: Growden Gate 3rd Lane


SUMMARY:

An ordinance accepting the lowest responsive bid and awarding a construction contract to Alamo City Constructors, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $470,411.20 for the Growden Gate 3rd Lane Project, a previously debt funded project, located in Council District 4.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The Growden Gate 3rd Lane Project is a project being completed in partnership with Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA). The City of San Antonio owns the Growden Gate right-of-way in front of the inspection area at JBSA. The Growden Gate commercial vehicle inspection lane's check point within the inspection area serves all commercial vehicles entering JBSA - Lackland Main Base. The check point is currently undersized and inadequate to accommodate traffic at peak hours. Additionally, the road leading to the check point, Growdon Road, was built as a two lane road and does not have a lane for vehicle stacking which can cause potential head-on collisions.

The Project will provide for the alleviation of commercial vehicle traffic stacking on Growdon Road up to 1,000 feet beyond the commercial vehicle inspection lane entry area. Additionally, the Project will widen Growdon Road into three lanes to accommodate for commercial traffic entering and waiting to enter the vehicle inspection check point as well as the mill and overlay and reconstruction of the driveway to Growden Gate.

Project construction is anticipated to begin January 2020 and estimated to be completed by March 2020.
