SUMMARY

 

The Safe Routes for Seniors (SR4S) Project implements pedestrian improvements designed to improve accessibility for senior residents and individuals with disabilities. Given the concentration of facilities serving senior residents in and around the Downtown, this project focuses primarily on the Downtown area of Hayward. The proposed improvements will increase walkability by improving safety and increasing accessibility for all. The Project includes four intersections located in Downtown Hayward.

 

On February 15, 2022, five (5) bids were received for the project, all of which were below the Engineer’s estimate. The low bid was $2,366,608, which is $382,552, or approximately 14%, below the Engineer’s estimate. Staff recommends that Council award the contract to the lowest bidder, Sposeto, in the amount not-to-exceed $2,366,608, and authorize a contingency budget of $233,000, for administrative change orders.

 

The project budget is $2,740,608 coming from Measure BB infrastructure improvements funds and is included in the FY 2019-2022 Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
