Paradise Valley Town Council to vote on contracts for road maintenance

Paradise Valley Town Council is expected to render a vote Thursday, Dec 15 to spend a combined total of about $1.5 million in contracts for street maintenance in certain parts of the town.

The Dec. 15 meeting is 6 p.m. at Town Hall, 6401 E. Lincoln Drive.

There are two proposed contracts. The first contract would be with M.R. Tanner Construction for $847,016 for a full mill and 1 and one-half asphalt overlay and the second would be with Sunland Asphalt for the amount of $656,037 to apply crack seal and a high density mineral bond surface treatments, according to a city staff presentation.

The total amount the town would spend on this budget is less than the town’s $1.54 million pavement management budget.

The town is looking to apply the mill and asphalt overlay to about a linear mile of Palo Christi Road from Lincoln Drive to Standford Drive and to selected streets in maintenance district 3, which includes Tatum Boulevard, Invergordon Road, Lincoln Drive and Jackrabbit Road. All application of mill and asphalt overlay in district 3 will amount to 3.9 linear miles, the presentation states.

For crack seal and PMM, the proposal contract would include work covering about 18.4 linear miles across the town, which covers three maintenance districts.

According to a town staff report, the work would include maintenance in district 1, an area boxed in by Lincoln Drive and the Arizona Canal to the north and south and 32nd Street and 38th Street to the west and east; and in district 9, between 40th Street and Tatum Boulevard as well as between Lincoln Drive and Clearwater Hills not including the community.

Between both these districts, the presentation states about 13.8 linear miles of streets would receive crack seal and PMM. Additionally, about 4.6 linear miles of street will undergo the same treatment in District 3.

The proposed schedule has crack seal maintenance in districts 1, 3 and 9 running through January and February of 2017. Next, full mill and paving of the 4.9 linear miles in district 3 and Palo Christi Road will happen in April 2017.

Finally, the application of PMM will start in April 2017 and has an estimated completion date of mid-June 2017.
