DISCUSSION:
On June 3, 2019, the City Council awarded a construction project for the Whittier Boulevard and Hacienda Road Intersection Improvements Project (Whittier/Hacienda Project).  This project includes:
  • Widening of the intersection to improve traffic flow at the intersection through wider lanes and better lane alignment;
  • Creation of one left-turn, one left/through lane and two right-turn lanes in the southbound direction on Hacienda Road; and
  • Creation of one left-turn and one right/through lane in the northbound direction on Hacienda Road. 
Hacienda Road in that area has a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) rating of 44, which is considered to be "poor" condition.  Staff have observed cracking and general pavement deterioration along portions of Hacienda Road to the north of the approved project.  As a result, staff approached the contractor for the approved intersection project and requested a proposal and quote to repave Hacienda Road from the northerly City boundary to the current intersection project at Whittier Boulevard.  The contractor responded with the proposal described herein and staff recommends acceptance of the proposal to complete the additional work.  
FISCAL IMPACT/SOURCE OF FUNDING:
The proposal for the additional requested work is $202,510.  There are sufficient unencumbered funds in the City's Gas Tax Fund that can be appropriated for this change order and the additional work necessary to complete the project.
