TITLE:
Consideration and Approval of Payment: Approval of Payment to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) in the amount of $117,136.01 for additional project design costs and administration for the Fourth Street-Cedar Avenue-Lockett Road Roundabout Project.
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
  1. Approve payment to ADOT for additional project design costs and project administration in the amount of $117,136.01; and
  2. Direct the City Manager to complete the necessary documents.
Executive Summary:
ADOT will administer the design and construction, and advertise, bid and award the construction of a roundabout to replace the signalized intersection at Fourth Street and Cedar Avenue/ Lockett Road. This roadway safety improvement project is the result of the City submitting a grant application to ADOT in 2018 for a competitive Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) award. This project was identified as a high priority through a local network crash data screening process. The roundabout will improve safety, slow speeds, help avoid angle crashes, and add a crosswalk at the 4th-leg of the intersection.
 
This project is identified in the MetroPlan Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), Transportation TIP #101020, ADOT Project #T0247, and IGA #20-0007711.
 
The City Council approved an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the City of Flagstaff and ADOT for this project on May 19th, 2020.  The IGA directs ADOT to administer the design and construction and to advertise, bid and award the project. The total HSIP Federal Funding was $1,928,367 and the total City funding was estimated to be $60,813.
 
The City Council approved IGA Amendment No. One on April 5th, 2022 which incorporated additional design scope to ensure the project fully mitigates impacts to surrounding properties, added a City of Flagstaff role during construction inspections, and updated project costs based on the most recent estimates. IGA Amendment No. One identified an immediate need for additional City funding in the amount of $73,000 for additional design scope and project administration costs, increased the estimated City share for right-of-way acquisition costs by $500,000, and updated the City share of estimated construction costs to $1,614,225.  The total project cost is estimated at $4,176,405. The total City financial commitment is currently estimated at $2,248,038. The City is responsible for any project costs in excess of the current HSIP grant award of $1,928,367.
 
Per IGA #20-0007711, Section II, 3b. The City will…. Agree to be responsible for actual PDA costs, if during the development of design, PDA costs exceed the initial estimate. Be responsible and pay for the difference between the estimated and actual PDA and design costs of the Project within 30 days of receipt of an invoice.
 
This item approves payment for the additional design costs to incorporate City Council requested Z-crossings and signalized pedestrian crossings, and additional utility relocation design. Following Council approval, ADOT will invoice the City for $117,136.01 to cover these additional design costs and ADOT project administration fees. Prior to project advertisement, the project construction cost estimate will be updated, and an IGA amendment brought to City Council for approval before the project moves forward.
