Body

PREAMBLE

The City is proposing to reconstruct Gammon Road from Mineral Point Road to the W. Beltline and to construct a portion of the West Towne path including the underpass of Gammon Road. 

 

The City applied for Federal Funds in the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and the project received approval for $1,573,440 of TAP funding.  The work on Gammon Road includes $4,014,000 of federally funded STP-Urban funds.

 

The project will be constructed under a contract let by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and a project Agreement with WisDOT is required for funding, oversight and construction.  The proposed project is planned for construction in the year 2020.  The construction cost of the improvement will be financed with federal and local funds.  The design cost will be funded with 100% local funds.  The design costs include State review services to oversee the development of plans and specifications for the project.

 

A revised agreement is required to update costs and to combine two projects, Gammon Road and West Towne Path.

 

The agreement requires that the City indemnify the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation.  City APM 1-1 requires Common Council Approval whenever the City indemnifies another party. 

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Mayor and City Clerk are hereby authorized to execute an amended agreement with the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation for construction cost sharing, plan development and State design review costs for the Gammon Road and West Towne Path project.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Common Council approves indemnification of the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation as set forth in the agreement in order to use federal funds for the Gammon Road and West Towne Path project.
