Purpose and Recommended Action
Recommendation

This is a request for City Council to authorize the Acting City Manager to enter into a professional services agreement for the design and construction services with Structural Grace, Inc. for the maintenance repair of five bridges in an amount not to exceed $58,204.
Background

Transportation and pedestrian bridges are part of the complex network for the safe movement of people, goods and services throughout the city. On-going bridge maintenance is essential for ensuring a safe, reliable, and high quality transportation network system. The scope of this project will provide repair and maintenance of components for five bridges identified in the Final Bridge Repair Recommendation Report dated December 11, 2014 prepared by Structural Grace, Inc. The bridges included in this project are at the following locations: Arizona Canal Diversion Channel (ACDC) at Cactus Road; Grand Canal at 83rd Avenue; Agua Fria River at Glendale Avenue; 55th Avenue and Utopia Road; and, ACDC at 59th Avenue.

In February 2014, Structural Grace, Inc. was selected from the current City of Glendale Engineering On-Call Consultants list to review, evaluate, and prioritize the Arizona Department of Transportation bridge inspection reports for all of bridges in the city, and prepare the Bridge Repair Recommendation Report identifying those in need of repair. This new agreement provides for design and construction administration services in the amount of $58,204.
Analysis

Maintaining transportation bridges throughout the city is the key component in ensuring uninterrupted transportation movements and protection to Glendale residents and businesses.
