Background Discussion

March 16, 2010 - The BCC executed the Agreement with URS Corporation Southern to provide design services for the proposed bridge over Manatee River at Fort Hamer Road in the amount of $2,905,900.55.

May 10, 2010 - The BCC authorized Change Order No. 1 in the amount of $240,910 for additional design services in response to the requirement of the United States Coast Guard to include the Rye Road corridor as an alternative.

Change Order No. 2 provides for additional design services in preparation of the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) permit primarily relating to data collection and analysis in response to comments received from the Department of Homeland Security, and for additional work to revise the design to change the requested permitting from four lanes to two lanes. 

The final cost for this Change Order was determined through negotiation with the consultant and has been reviewed by staff and found to be fair, reasonable, and acceptable. Final permitting is expected to be complete by midyear 2014.
