Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This resolution approves an amendment to an intergovernmental agreement between the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Department of Public Works for the reimbursement of railroad crossing safety improvements at Post Road. The original agreement was approved by Resolution No. RS2020-450. These safety improvements include new signal poles, mast arms, signal heads, traffic signs, and railroad crossing signage. The total cost of the project was originally estimated to be $62,786.06, with Metro being responsible for 10% of the cost ($6,278.61), and TDOT will be responsible for 90% ($56,507.45).

 

The project cost estimate has now increased to $171,931.11, in which the total cost is to be split 10% Metro ($17,193.11), and 90% for TDOT ($154,738.00). The cost increase is a result of changes required by CSX Transportation consisting of the installation of preemption cable to run below ground instead of above the track, and for approximately 20 days of flagging services.
