Train depot ordinance on Suisun council agenda

By July 01, 2014

SUISUN CITY — Suisun City council members will be asked Tuesday to authorize the city manager to enter into an agreement for the second designs phase of the Suisun-Fairfield Train Depot Improvement Project.

Approval will award Interact Resources the job of preparing the construction documents. The same firm was hired to do the first phase, the historical review.

The resolution will also award the contract for complete of the historic compliance report, required by Caltrans as part of their environmental review process, a staff report said.

The construction contract will be brought back the council at a later date.

The city has been awarded a $600,000 grant from One Bay Area for improvements at the train depot. The money requires a local match of $47,600. A portion of the awarded State Transit Assistance funds will be used for the match.

An additional $100,100 will be used from other funding sources to bring the total available for the project to $700,100.

Phase two will cost $82,900. An additional $15,000 is needed for the historic compliance report.

A special meeting at 6 p.m. precedes the regular meeting at 7 p.m. Both are in the council chambers at 701 Civic Center Blvd.

The complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.

    How about some pedestrian bridges over the tracks that are not ridiculous long mazes to cross and perhaps we will see less people killed on those tracks.
