Bonner Springs City Council Authorizes Riverview Project
Bonner Springs, Kansas – At the Council Meeting on Monday, September 25, 2017, the City Council unanimously approved the financing and construction of the Riverview Culvert Replacement Project. Staff and engineers have been working on this project since the street closure in September 2016. The project includes removing two storm water culverts on Riverview between 110th Street and 118th Street.
Annual inspections of the Mission Creek storm water culverts were completed in June 2016. During these inspections, deterioration was found at two Riverview storm culverts. Due to these concerns, City Engineers completed a second inspection of the culverts. As a result, the decision was made to close the portion of Riverview between 110th Street and 118th Street, which occurred on September 16, 2016
On December 29, 2016, staff sent out a request for design engineering bids which was awarded on January 12, 2017, to SK Design Group. The initial construction estimate was submitted to replace the two culverts with no channel realignment or roadway widening. Staff determined the stormwater system in this area could be improved by installing larger culverts, lengthening the culvert boxes, constructing retaining walls, and providing enough room on the roadway for future widening and sidewalks. The final design was completed in June 2017.
After the engineering design was complete, staff released the project for construction bids on July 6, 2017, with bids received ranging from $588,088.50 to $919,310.00. City staff also needed to obtain right-of-way and temporary easement acquisitions from the abutting property owners – which took an additional month to complete. Once all of the right-of-way and temporary easements were in place City Council approved the financing of the project (up to $830,000) and bid award on September 25, 2017.
The project construction was awarded to WCI, Inc. Once a notice to proceed is issued, the project is estimated to be complete in 60 working days – which does not include weekends or holidays. This is only an estimate, and may change due to weather and/or project delays.
