D.2017 Emergency Road Repairs
Departments: Public Works - Engineering
30 minutes (15 minutes presentation and 15 minutes discussion)

(Garrett Higerd) - Report on roads damaged by flooding and recommended repairs.

Recommended Action: 1. Receive update on historic flooding caused by snowmelt and resulting damages to low water crossing on Upper Summers Meadow Road in the Bridgeport Valley and Crowley Lake Drive near Tom’s Place.  Consider recommendations for emergency repairs.  2. As established by Public Contract Code Chapter 2.5 “Emergency Contracting Procedures," make a finding, based on substantial evidence set forth in this staff report and at the meeting, that the emergency will not permit a delay resulting from a competitive solicitation for bids, and that action to repair the roads is necessary to respond to the emergency.  (A 4/5 vote is required.)  3. Direct the County Engineer to immediately procure the necessary equipment, services, and supplies to make emergency repairs, without giving notice for bids to let contracts.  4. Amend the FY 2016-2017 Carry-over Budget to include these projects. 

Fiscal Impact: The Upper Summers Meadow Road bridge at Green Creek is eligible for 75% funding via the California Disaster Assistance Act (CDAA) Program administered by Cal OES.  The total cost of replacement is estimated at $350,000. Staff proposes that the 25% local match be paid with new SB1/RMRA gas tax funds. SB1 gas tax funds may be used as a match for State and Federally-funded projects. However, Cal OES has indicated that SB1 funds may not be an eligible match for CDAA Program funds. This question is still under evaluation. If it is ultimately determined that SB1 funds cannot be used as a match, then staff proposes that the entire project cost be paid for with SB1 funds.The Crowley Lake Drive road edge and shoulder repairs are eligible for 88.53% funding via the Emergency Relief (ER) Program administered by Caltrans. The total cost of repairs is estimated at $100,000. Staff proposes that the 11.47% local match be paid with new SB1/RMRA gas tax funds. Caltrans has no objection to these funds being used as the match.
