Title
AUTHORIZE Contract Modification No. 280 (CCO 280) by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for the construction contract for Segment 3 (Empire) of I-5 North Capacity Enhancements Project between SR-134 and SR-118 (Project) in the amount $631,246.57 under Funding Agreement No. MOU.P0008355/8501A/A9 within the current LOP budget.

Issue
ISSUE

The construction contract for Segment 3 between West Magnolia Boulevard Overcrossing and 0.3 miles north of Buena Vista Street/Winona Avenue Undercrossing was awarded on November 29, 2012 with the scheduled completion date of September 27, 2017.

"Furnishing the RE's office and equipment" (Item) was a contract bid item with a lump sum payment of $742,000 in the original contract. Under this item, the contractor was responsible for furnishing and maintaining the RE office, equipment and supplies, and utilities. The project is now scheduled to open to traffic by December 2021 - 50 months beyond the original scheduled opening date - due to the delays resulting from relocation of utilities and other related work not accounted for in design, different site conditions, hazardous material encountered, additional work demanded by the affected communities, and design changes.

On October 1, 2019, the contractor filed a claim for $631,246.57 for the escalated cost of work related to furnishing Resident Engineer's (RE's) office to maintain office and equipment until December 24, 2021. Caltrans has conducted a force account analysis for the claim and has approved the amount presented in this report.

CCO 280 authorizes $631,246.57 to compensate the contractor for the Item until December 24, 2021. Contract modifications exceeding $500,000 require Board authorization.
