Ripon re­lo­cat­ing River Road sig­nal

Ripon Bulletin - - Front Page - By VINCE REMBULAT

The River Road In­ter­sec­tion Project will see a large traf­fic sig­nal pole re­lo­cated from the orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion based on a re­cent change or­der.

No dis­cus­sion was nec­es­sary at the Aug. 14 Ripon City Coun­cil meet­ing.

Elected lead­ers ap­proved $2,931 from the Ac­tive Trans­porta­tion Pro­gram from the grant funds for Change Or­der No. 4.

The rea­son for the change was due to a dec­o­ra­tive ar­bor struc­ture as part of the pri-

vate Vine­yards Sub­di­vi­sion project on the south / west cor­ner of the River Road and Ful­ton Av­enue in­ter­sec­tion -out­lined in the North Point Spe­cific Plan, where widen­ing of River Road, west of Ful­ton, calls for about 1,300 feet, as pri­vately funded by those in­volved in the Vine­yards sub­di­vi­sion.

“The lo­ca­tion of this dec­o­ra­tive ar­bor struc­ture was in

direct con­flict with the orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion of the large traf­fic sig­nal pole to be in­stalled on the same south / west cor­ner as part of the River Road In­ter­sec­tion Project,” ac­cord­ing to staff re­port by Engi­neer­ing Su­per­vi­sor James Pease.

Staff re­quested a change or­der from Pa­cific Ex­ca­va­tion for mak­ing “any nec­es­sary mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the sig­nal arm span­ning Ful­ton Av­enue,” Pease added.

This brings the project to­tal to $408,047.

Pa­cific Ex­ca­va­tion was awarded the project in June 2017 -- the orig­i­nal bid was $364,231 as funded by the Ac­tive Trans­porta­tion Pro­gram grant.

Sev­eral re­cent change or­ders in­clud­ing the in­stal­la­tion of an ad­di­tional storm drain line and elec­tri­cal com­po­nents to meet the Modesto Ir­ri­ga­tion Dis­trict guide­lines ($35,344) in February, and util­ity con­flicts along with a re­duc­tion in the curb and gut­ter quan­tity ($5,540) in May added to the cost.
