Action Requested
  • Approval of the FDOT Construction Agreement for Utility Agreement for Utility Relocations - Water, Sewer, and IT Communications/School Board at SR 93 (I-75) and SR 70, and authorization for the Chairperson to execute the agreements;
  • Adoption of Resolution R-17-139.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Manatee County desire to enter into the agreement pursuant to Section 334.0044 (13) and 339.282 Florida Statutes to construct and improve public transportation facilities.

Background Discussion

The County often enters into standard Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Agreements required as a condition of having County utilities present in the FDOT Right-of-Ways that require adjustments to accommodate FDOT facilities.

The FDOT is currently undertaking improvements to the interchange of SR 93 (I-75) at SR 70.  As a result, it is desirable to Manatee County for the FDOT contractor to perform the relocation of County utilities including water and sewer.  Also, during the performance of this scope of work, it is desirable for the FDOT contractor to relocate the IT Communications for the School Board and the County.

By entering into these agreements, the County will save the expense of   utility relocation costs.  These agreements provide that the FDOT will pay all the costs associated with the relocation of all the utilities through federal funding.  The savings to the County and the School Board through entering into these FDOT agreements for the FDOT to perform the utility relocations are:

  • Water and Sewer Relocates - $892,718.07
  • IT Communication/School Board - $295,414.19
