Request for Bids: Culvert Installation

The Town of Pittsford is seeking bids for the installation of a pre-cast concrete box culvert to be ordered and purchased by the Town, designed by Engineering Ventures, PC and produced by Camp Precast Concrete Products.

The box culvert will be a Precast Split Type II culvert and Stoneterre Retaining Wall System to be installed under Fire Hill Road (TH #21) in Florence and will come in eight (8) sections together bearing total overall dimensions of 8’ H x 16’ W x 38’4” plus four wing walls, two of which are to be installed at each end of the box culvert.    Design plans for the culvert may be viewed at the Town Manager’s Office, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am – 4 pm.  This project will be partially funded by a VTrans “Structures” grant.  The necessary stream alteration permit is already in hand and the Town will work with the Contractor to secure the needed wetlands permit from the State.

Contractor is responsible for coordinating with VELCO, which must notify customers in the area in advance of installation work and must hire SKY CRANE, which has already assessed the site and developed a plan for delivery and placement of the box culvert components.  Contractor is also responsible for supplying all labor, trucks, equipment, erosion control measures, dust control measures, signage, traffic control, excavation and removal of the existing culvert, unloading and installation of the new concrete box culvert (with the assistance of SKY CRANE), back-filling and compaction in 12” inch lifts, using any suitable existing material and removing and disposing of any unsuitable material.  For any additional materials needed for back filling and building the road bed,  the Contractor will use State-specification material from Florence Crushed Stone, which the Town will purchase through a designated purchase order (P.O.).   Contractor will use 3 ½” inch minus dense grade material for back-filling first layers and 1 ½” inch minus material for last 12” inches of back-fill.  Contractor will be responsible for hauling all material and road improvements such as finish grades, slopes, grass seed and mulch and patching road with 3” inch asphalt base (3/4” mix) and 1 ¼” topcoat (1/2” mix).

Work must be completed before October 15, 2018.  All work and materials will be guaranteed for one (1) year.

Any and all contractors planning to bid MUST attend a MANDATORY Pre-Bid Meeting to begin at the project site on Friday, February 23 at 9:00 a.m. (From Whipple Hollow Road, take Fire Hill Road near the Omya entrance and travel approximately one-half of a mile).
