The Airport Basin project inched closer to completion during Tuesday night’s County Council meeting when Guaranteed Maximum Price #3 was approved by councilors.
As the project grows, so does the cost; or so it seems. Capital Projects Manager and Facilities Director Anne Laurent was in council chambers Tuesday night seek approval of GMP #3.
During the presentation by Laurent, she said that GMP #3 will authorize all of the remaining work items except for remaining asphalt pavement.
According to county documents, the final lift of asphalt will be applied to the access road along with other site paving beginning in late spring and ending in the early fall of 2009, when the majority of the heavy construction vehicles have completed on-site work.
Asphalt prices remain high and the current price is only guaranteed for 30 days, therefore, county staff has deferred the asphalt GMP to a subsequent GMP (#4), which they anticipate bringing before council in April 2009.
“We’re coming back this evening with GMP #3. We wanted to do the remainder of the work, but we want to exclude asphalt,” Laurent said.
In regard to the price of asphalt, she said that it is currently priced at $84 a ton.
