City to receive bids on major projects

GREENVILLE — The City of Greenville will have a better idea later this week as to how much it will cost to complete two major projects.

Bids are due by Thursday afternoon from companies interested in performing maintenance work to some two dozen local streets and/or rehabbing one of the city’s big elevated water storage tanks.

The city is planning to spend almost $900,000 under the 2013 Street Improvement Program, which will not involve any new construction.

Director of Public Works/Interim City Manager Massoud Ebrahim has proposed 24 individual projects on portions of 23 streets in Greenville, divided among the six City Council precincts. The work will involve milling, overlaying, chip sealing and micro-surfacing on the streets.

The streets proposed for maintenance under the program include King from Lee to Henry, Clark from Gillespie to Polk, Patterson from Mullaney to the culdesac, Nob Hill from Cedar Ridge to Creekside, Horne Street from U.S. Highway 69 to the end, River Oaks from Horne Street to the end, Northgate from Peacock to the end, all of Northgate Circle, Kingswood from Royal Oaks to Oak Creek, all of Briarwood Circle, Rosewood from Oak Creek to Aerobic, Poplar from Wesley to Sayle, Garden from Stonewall to Interstate 30, Meadowbrook from Stonewall to Stonewall, Cornelia from King to Sayle and from Moulton to Seventh, Creek Crossing from Shelby to Ridgecrest, Henderson from Stanford to Division, Redbud from First to Cornelia, Stanford from Moulton to Fourth, Hemphill from Moulton to Stuart, Frontier from Sahara to River Oaks and Royal Oaks from FM 1570 to the end.

A 2006 assessment of 200 miles of streets in Greenville is being used as a strategy tool to schedule reconstruction/rehabilitation projects within the city.

Sealed bids are also being accepted for the rehabilitation of the 1 million gallon Webb Street tower.

In March, the City Council approved a $42,800 professional services agreement with Cobb Fendley and Associates, Inc. for engineering services to design the project.

Two Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) inspections, in 2009 and again in 2012, recommended the rehabilitation for the storage tank. The 2009 report stressed the need for rehabilitation in the near future and that delaying the rehabilitation beyond three years could result in the need for extensive repairs.

The winning bidder will be responsible for removing one-eighth inch of sediment from the bottom of the tank, weld any pitted surfaces on the interior, perform a “near white” metal blast cleaning, coat and paint the interior, perform a commercial blast cleaning on the exterior and paint the exterior to also include the City of Greenville logo.

Once the bids for both projects are opened, they will be evaluated by Ebrahim’s office and his recommendations will be presented to the Council for their consideration.
