Title
CONSTRUCTION COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED (3-0) authorizing the Chief Executive Officer to execute the list of Change Orders by Caltrans in Segment 2 construction contract of the I-5 North Capacity Enhancements from SR-134 to SR-118 under the Funding Agreement No. MOU.P0008355/8501 A/A5, in the amount of $2,969,831 without an increase in the project budget or contract value.

Issue
ISSUE

Metro assists in the programming and provides partial funding for the I-5 North Capacity Enhancements from SR-134 to SR-118 through a MOU with the State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The I-5 North Capacity Enhancements were designed by Caltrans, and construction management is administrated by Caltrans. Contract modifications exceeding $500,000 require Board authorization per the Staff Delegations of Contract Action Approval and Award Authority Memo, dated February 23, 2010.

The anticipated construction contract completion date of this project is on December 1, 2015. In order to accept the construction contract, the merit of all the "Deferred Time" issues and the increased cost associated with the Contract Change Orders and all submitted Notice of Potential Claims (NOPCs) must be evaluated to determine entitlement. All of the following Contract Change Orders (CCOs) have been determined by Caltrans to be an entitlement to the contractor before the contract acceptance. All CCOs have been combined to be a single package in the Board Report for transparency and approval. The contract value of this project remains $119,688,319.
