Public Works seeks approval for street design and support agreement


The following is a preview of the July 17 City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall in Council Chambers. You may view the full agenda here. 

Providing support for three fast-tracked street improvement projects, Public Works is requesting an agreement with RKA Consulting Group to provide engineering support for the following street projects: Pavement rehabilitation:

  • Adelyn Drive from Mission Drive to just west of Bradbury Drive

  • Mount Vernon Drive, which includes the entire loop to and from Alhambra Road

  • Cresta Avenue from Las Tunas Drive to Hermosa Drive

  • Pine Street from Las Tunas Drive to the north end

  • Live Oak Street from Pine Street to San Gabriel Boulevard

The second project includes engineering design, construction management and post-construction services for phase five of the 2018-19 CDBG program:

  • Saxon Avenue from I-10 Del Mar offramp to the I-10 San Gabriel Boulevard onramp
  • Loftus Avenue from Del Mar Avenue to the Alhambra Wash
  • Strathmore Avenue from Saxon Avenue to Marshall Street
  • Denton Avenue from I-10 to Marshall Street
  • Lafayette Street from Saxon Avenue to Marshall Street
  • Glendon Way from Lafayette Street to California Street

Finally, the agreement includes the design of the 2018-19 Minor Street Resurfacing Project, which includes resurfacing and repaving work: 

  • Broadway from just east of the Rubio Wash to Charlotte Avenue, full width and from Charlotte Avenue to Walnut Grove Avenue, south side only
  • Del Loma Avenue from Broadway to the south end of the street
  • Delta Street from Broadway south approximately 180 feet to City limits
  • Angelus Avenue from Broadway north approximately 175 feet to City limits
  • Charlotte Avenue from Broadway north approximately 275 feet to City limits and from Broadway south approximately 180 feet to City limits

RKA is a pre-qualified consultant for the City that has the expertise and experience needed to carry the scope of work for these projects. The company has also served as the construction manager for the first four phases of the CDBG Street Improvement Project, with extensive knowledge about the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s requirements for CDBG projects. This project management support is needed to augment City staff to ensure quality assurance and cost control. 

These projects are being fast-tracked in order to utilize remaining funding from the I-Bank loan. The City Council is requested to approve $34,100 alongside a contingency fee of 10% for the agreement with RKA. In addition, Public Works is also requesting $83,957.50 to fund the CDBG and minor street resurfacing projects for a total amount of $118,057.50. It’s important to note that CDBG funds will not be used to fund project services.
