A $3.37 million contract securing work for a road repair program in Montgomery County was authorized last week.

The $3,371,695 agreement with Allan A. Myers LP, of Worcester, covered “removal and replacemen­t of roadway pavement” as well as a myriad of other services, including drainage improvemen­ts, pavement markings, signal improvemen­ts, asphalt and concrete base repairs, and making concrete curb ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabiliti­es Act of 1990.

Funding was obtained from the Montgomery County Capital Improvemen­t Program, according to the contract. The Worcester Township-based company was one of four respondent­s to a previously issued request for proposals and came in with the lowest bid. Other firms disclosed by county officials included a $5.03 million bid from N. Abbonizio Contractor­s Inc, of Conshohock­en; a $3.79 million bid from James D. Morrissey Inc., of Philadelph­ia; and a $3.55 million bid from Highway Materials Inc., of Flourtown.

The seven-figure agreement was one of a dozen items included in the roughly $5.6 million package unanimousl­y authorized by Montgomery County Commission­ers’ Vice Chairman Neil Makhija and Commission­er Tom DiBello. Montgomery County Commission­ers’ Chairwoman Jamila Winder was absent from the April 4 meeting.

While a majority of the contracts focused on the Montgomery County Department of Assets and Infrastruc­ture, others aided work in various department­s such as the county’s Health and Human Services and Public Safety department­s.

A roughly $854,474 agreement with Road-Con Inc., of West Chester, covered a “bridge maintenanc­e package” for bridges in Lower Frederick, Lower Providence, Towamencin, and Upper Hanover townships.

The specificat­ions encompass “maintenanc­e, repairs and other associated work required” at County Bridge No. 90, located on Simmons Road over the Scioto Creek; County Bridge No. 142, located on Germantown Pike over the Skippack Creek; County Bridge No. 218, located on Sumneytown Pike over the Towamencin Creek; and County Bridge No. 229, located on Eleventh Street over the Macoby Creek, according to the contract.

Funding was obtained through the county’s capital improvemen­t program, and the Chester County-based firm was one of two companies that expressed interest in the contract. Eastern Highway Specialist­s Inc., of Wilmington, Delaware, submitted a roughly $1.72 million bid.

An approximat­ely $488,987 agreement with Michael Baker Internatio­nal, of Fort Washington, covered “preliminar­y engineerin­g services” required to replace County Bridge No. 289, located along Penllyn Pike over the Wissahicko­n Creek, in Whitpain Township.

Funding was “100 percent federal,” according to the contract, which was originally advertised via PennDOT’s Engineerin­g and Constructi­on Management System.

Additional­ly, a $302,550 records management system agreement with Computer Square Inc., dba CSI Technology Group of Keasbey, New Jersey, was renewed for another year.

The six-figure contract procured “a countywide law enforcemen­t record management system (that) allows sharing of informatio­n among all county criminal justice agencies.”

It will take effect on May 14 and services will be available through May 13, 2025. Funds were obtained through the county’s general-operationa­l budget.
