Staff Recommendation:

Analysis:

The purpose of this solicitation is to establish a construction services agreement with a qualified firm to accomplish an airport runway and taxiway construction project at the Leesburg International Airport to extend runway 31 and taxiway A in accordance with FAA, state and local requirements.

 

The work to be performed is generally described as:  provide all administration, materials, tools, permits, labor, equipment and supervision related to Leesburg International Airport’s Runway 31 and Partial Taxiway “A” Extension.  This project includes grading and extending Runway 31 1,000-feet, the safety area, and Taxiway “A”.  Extension includes paving and lighting.  In addition, a new floodplain compensation area will be created.

 

Funds for the project were made available under an Airport Improvement Program Grant from the Federal Aviation Administration appropriated under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, also known as the Federal Economic Stimulus Package.  The City is receiving $3,835,397 from the ARRA.  These are 100% grant funds with no match from the City.  The grant funds will be split between engineering services, construction services and wetland mitigation credits.  The mitigation credits are estimated to be $2,185,003.50. 

 

A portion of these costs will be covered by previous grants approved by the Commission.  See table on following page for break down.
