Vacaville to see needed street work

By From page A7 | June 11, 2014

VACAVILLE — Council members approved a resolution Tuesday to award a contract for about $1.38 million for a resurfacing project funded by gas tax and a One Bay Area grant that is set to begin this month.

The city received two bids: one for almost $1.9 million and the lowest bid, from Windsor Fuel Company out of Pittsburg, for $1.7 million. The bids included a base project for Depot Street from Mason Street to East Monte Vista Avenue; and also Leisure Town Road from the area of Stonegate Drive to Orange Drive, excluding the bridge over Horse Creek. Also included in the bid amount were three alternatives ranked based on pavement condition, with No. 1 being in worst condition:

  • Alternative 1: Browns Valley Parkway from Brown Street to East Monte Vista Avenue; and East Monte Vista Avenue from 500 feet west of Browns Valley Parkway to Browns Valley Parkway.
  • Alternative 2: Allison Drive from Ulatis Drive to East Monte Vista Avenue.
  • Alternative 3: Davis Street from 240 feet north of Claremont Drive to Alamo Drive.

Based on allowed funding, city staff recommended awarding the base bid plus the first two alternatives, totaling almost $1.4 million, which is what council members unanimously chose to do.

City Manager Laura Kuhn said it’s been several years since they’ve been able to do a project of this size.

“I didn’t think I would be so excited to get our roads paved again, but I am,” said Councilman Ron Rowlett. “As I drive around, it’s embarrassing. I appreciate this. I’m excited about it.”

Work is slated to be completed in September.

    What about Mechant street? It looks horrible especially at the intersection of Alamo Drive. I remember the last time they paved it and it was 1989!
