Staff recommends approval of Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.
The project to extend runway 13/31 originally included the removal of the jog in Taxiway A. However, at the time construction of the extension took place, the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) would not issue a permit for the Taxiway A work because of the need to determine mitigation requirement. SJRWMD has now issued the permit for this area and work to realign the taxiway can move forward.
Task Order No. 6 provides engineering, bidding, and construction services associated with the removal of the wetland that has been mitigated as part of the Taxiway “A” Realignment Project. This portion of the project includes permitting, mitigation, and clearing, filling and grading of the existing wetland area. It does not include final construction of the new segment of Taxiway “A”.
Grant agreements from the Federal Aviation Administration (95%) and the Florida Department of Transportation (2.5%) have been approved for this portion of the project. The City will be responsible for 2.5% of the cost.
1. Approve Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding for this project is included in the airport budget. The breakdown of costs for Task Order No. 6 is as follows:
FAA (95%) $84,274.50
FDOT (2.5%) $ 2,217.75
City (2.5%) $ 2,217.75
