A Revelstoke road maintenance and utility upgrade project worth $1.5 million was awarded to Jake-Jay Construction.
The project, which will include parking and sidewalk improvements near Okanagan College and the new splash park, was identified in the city’s Pavement Management Plan as high priority.
In the city’s 2020-2024 budget, $1.5 million was set aside for the project. With the bid coming in at $1.37 million, there is room for additional consultant costs as well as a contingency.
“Jake-Jay Construction Ltd. provided a robust work plan, aggressive schedule, identified potential cost savings (to be determined through the actual construction sequencing), a detailed detour plan promoting safety and movement of vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists, and communication program to keep the community and visitors informed,” reads the staff report.
The project is set to be complete by early September.
Proposed sub contractors in Revelstoke include Instant Green Hydroseeding, Zone Traffic Control, Canyon Industrial Electrical Services and Valley Blacktop.
The project will include roadworks, removal and replacement of water pipe, sanitary sewer pipe, storm drain pipes, electrical and communications ducts, new lighting and signage.
