Ratification of Contract Y7-723, International Drive Rehabilitation Project (Westwood
Boulevard to Little Lake Bryan Parkway), with Gibbs & Register, Inc., for the base bid
amount of $3,416,340 plus the additive item of $1,552,500 for a total amount of
Funding is available in account 4420-038-1427-6340.
Engineering Division concurs with this recommendation.
The project includes the construction of 8,300 linear feet of 30-inch PVC force main.
The work included in the additive item includes slip lining of the existing 8,300 linear
feet of deteriorated 30-inch ductile iron pipe force main to allow it to be converted from a
30-inch force main to a 24-inch reclaimed water main. This project is located in central
The 30-inch ductile iron pipe on International Drive has deteriorated due to long-term
exposure to hydrogen sulfide gas. In the past three years there have been six force main
failures on International Drive between Westwood Boulevard and Little Lake Bryan
Parkway. These failures have caused significant soil erosion of the surrounding soils.
This condition is likely to result in roadway failure that could result in serious impacts to
public safety, health and the environment. Permanent repair was not possible due to the
inability to divert the flow off the line. Consequently, construction of a new 30-inch
force will adequately address this condition. Due to the urgent nature of this requirement,
time did not permit the normal solicitation and award process for the work.
Consequently, this project was approved for emergency contracting and the work is
ongoing with an estimated completion date of February 2008.
On January 25, 2007, the County received five bids. Gibbs & Register, Inc. was selected
o provide the services. Gibbs & Register, Inc. has a satisfactory record of performance
and is considered responsible.
