Town Of Moraga

Canyon Road Bridge Update and Amend NV5 Contract - April 2019

On April 5, 2019, Caltrans Highway Bridge Program approved the Town’s request to reprogram the project’s construction funding to Federal Fiscal Year 2018/19, enabling the Town to begin construction in spring 2020. The Town Council received an update including an overview of the original replacement bridge project; the temporary bridge project necessitated by a landslide in 2017 on EBMUD’s nearby property; how risk management has been handled throughout the process; the revised bridge project and updated cost estimates. Information was presented on the costs of keeping the temporary bridge. The estimated $2.7 million cost to either purchase or lease a temporary bridge with a 20-year lifespan was not justifiable given the $750,000 cost to the Town for the $9.7 million permanent replacement bridge with a 100-year lifespan. The Town Council amended Nolte Vertical 5’s (NV5) bridge design contract so that bid documents can be finalized. The staff report and presentation provides a detailed project update.
