Background Discussion

The construction of the Fort Hamer Bridge Project and functional improvements to Fort Hamer Road and Upper Manatee River Road  will begin in the first quarter of 2015.  The Work consists of constructing a bridge over Manatee River connecting Upper Manatee River Road with Fort Hamer Road. In addition, the Work also includes roadway functional improvements to both Upper Manatee River Road and Fort Hamer Road.

The County requested HDR to provide a proposal for a Work Assignment to provide CEI Services during the construction of the project.  HDR will provide the inspection services for the mid-span bridge.  In addition, HDR will provide administration, material testing, and coordination of the project.  HDR will also certify at the completion of the project, that the project was built in conformity with the construction plans and specifications.

On June 20, 2013, the County approved the Agreement with HDR to provide Transportation Engineering Professional Services.  This Agreement has been extended once and is effective until June 19, 2015.  Three (3) additional one-year extensions remain.
