120.8 General Nature of Public Improvement Project
KAUFMANN AVENUE STORM SEWER IMPROVEMENT PROJECT FROM FRANCIS STREET TO NORTH MAIN STREET
2642769 1x0006
64042735

The Kaufmann Avenue Storm Sewer Improvement Project from Francis Street to North Main Street is one phase of the Bee Branch Watershed Flood Mitigation Project. The project involves the replacement of the existing storm sewer with a large diameter storm sewer and additional storm drains (intakes) along Kaufmann Avenue from Francis Street to west of the Main Street/Valeria Street intersection with Kaufmann Avenue. Improvements will continue up Kaufmann Avenue to Kane Street in a future phase depending on future funding. This work will require the relocation and reconstruction of existing underground utilities to provide the necessary space for the larger storm sewer. It will also require the complete removal and subsequent reconstruction of the street.

Improvements include the installation of approximately 280 linear feet of 10-foot by 6-foot concrete box culvert (either cast-in place or precast) with cast in place connections on the west end of the project. The project will include large trench grate intakes across the roadway and local storm sewer and intakes. Due to the extensive storm sewer construction the project will require roadway reconstruction with HMA pavement, PCC driveway, sidewalk, and curb ramp reconstruction, PCC wall, railing, and step construction, water main replacement, sanitary sewer replacement, temporary storm water management, dewatering, mobilization, electrical conduits, fiber vaults, miscellaneous restoration, erosion control, and traffic control.

This project also has an alternate to install new full width storm sewer intakes on 17th Street near Heeb Street. The work would involve removing the temporary storm sewer connection constructed previously in 2018 and constructing a permanent termination point for the 10-foot by 5-foot box culvert. This termination point would include full street width storm intake grates to capture overland flow before reaching Central Avenue.

Base Bid Estimated Total Cost = $1,517,743.00
Alternate Bid Estimated Total Cost = $330,456.00
