Sentinel staff report–
Work began this week on a $1.7 million residential street repaving contract that is set to bring improvements to deteriorating sections of 13 streets in various Citrus Heights neighborhoods.
The contract for the city’s 2019 Residential Street Resurfacing Project was awarded to Central Valley Engineering & Asphalt, Inc., during the City Council’s Sept. 12 meeting. Among seven bids submitted for the project, CVE had the lowest base bid of $1.48 million. Other bids ranged from $1.6 million to as high as $2.3 million.
Regina Cave, operations manager for the City of Citrus Heights, told The Sentinel on Wednesday that associated concrete and ADA ramp work is being prioritized first, with the contractor working on “an accelerated schedule to get ahead of inclement weather.”
Once concrete work is completed, she said paving activity could begin as early as next week on Glenhurst Way, a residential street located south of Antelope Road, off Saybrook Drive.
Streets to be repaved as part of the latest contract include:
- Alma Mesa Way. From Dana Butte Way to its southern end.
- Baranga Drive. From Winlock Avenue to Kaplan Way
- Baymore Way. From Sandalwood Drive to its southern end.
- Bix Avenue. The loop off Hilltree Avenue.
- Carrick Court. From Menke Way to its southwest end.
- Cheval Court. From its western end to Amsterdam Avenue.
- Coronet Court. From Minuet Way to its southwest end.
- Glenhurst Way. From Millwood Drive to Saybrook Drive.
- Graham Circle. (Entire street)
- Halifax Street. From Westbrook Drive to 6500 Halifax Street.
- Holm Oak Way. From Garry Oak Drive to Lobata Street.
- Longden Circle. From Arcaro Court to Argo Drive.
- Sunwood Way. From 7317 Starflower Drive to Misty Creek Drive.
The contract was approved with an additional 15 percent contingency figure built in, along with a $45,000 estimated cost for construction management, bringing the total estimated price to $1.75 million.
Funding will largely come from a controversial gas tax measure that passed in 2017. According to a city staff report on the project, $1.45 million will come from SB 1 “gas tax” funds, $100,000 will come from other gas tax revenue, and $300,000 will come from Measure A Maintenance funds.
The first residential streets in Citrus Heights that were repaved with SB 1 funds were approved last year and totaled 1.3 miles of roadway on portions of six streets that were rated among the worst condition in the city.
In April of this year, the City Council also approved a list of 13 additional streets to be repaved using SB 1 funds, but a contract has not yet been awarded for the project.
