Background Discussion

Manatee County initially planned to utilize in-house forces to make necessary adjustments to the water and sewer lines to facilitate the roadway construction of this project. In order to prevent project delays and conflicts with multiple contractors on the project site,  the County and the Contractor agreed the best course was to allow the Contractor to perform the adjustments needed for the project.

Change Order #1 to Agreement #13-0773CD provides for the necessary adjustments to existing water and sewer utility lines to allow for the roadway construction of this project.

On June 18, 2013, the BCC executed an agreement pursuant to Invitation for Bid 13-0773CD with Gator Grading & Paving, LLC, in the amount of $2,031,300.15 for intersection improvements at US 301 and Fort Hamer Road.

The Budget Amendment (B-14-016) will appropriate $35,000.00 to the project which represents a transfer of $35,000.00 from the Utilities 2010A BABS Bonds fund to the Capital Improvement Project Fund (6061980).
