The low bidder, MCK Services, Inc. is an experienced public works contractor with over 20 years of paving construction experience throughout the Bay Area. MCK Services, Inc.’s bid amount of $2,473,669 is within the engineer’s estimate. Staff recommends moving forward with this project to improve the condition of the project streets and prevent further deterioration leading to costlier pavement rehabilitation treatments. Therefore, staff recommends the award of the contract to MCK Services, Inc. for $2,473,669. Staff anticipates construction to commence in late-July 2020 and be completed by October 2020.



City staff will be coordinating significant communications prior to and during the project through various forms of media, including citywide emails, social media posts and routine updates on the City website. Updates will occur as often as necessary to inform the community of impacts as the project progresses. The project sites are located adjacent to residences and businesses and the contractor will provide written notifications to affected residents and businesses in advance of construction activities.


The major grinding and paving work along Condit Road, East Dunne Avenue, and Tennant Avenue will be performed at night to minimize impacts to the community.



The award of this contract will improve the overall condition of the project streets as identified and selected from the City’s Pavement Management Report. No alternative actions are presented at this time. Should the Council not elect to move forward with the project, funds would not be expended and could be used on a future pavement project. Future projects would not occur until the summer of 2021, resulting in roadways degrading further.
