East Rodgers Drive Slope Repair

On Monday, April 8, 2013 road failure was reported to the City of Fayetteville.  Recent rainfall aggravated an ongoing problem with the slope stability between the E. Rodgers Drive Water Tanks and a portion of the southern side of E. Rodgers Drive.  As a result of the slope failure, a portion of E. Rodgers Drive has been compromised.  The south side (east bound lane) of E. Rodgers Drive has settled and is gradually sliding down the hill.  For many homes in this area, E. Rodgers Drive is the only means of ingress and egress.

At the April 16, 2013 City Council Meeting, the Council approved an ordinance waiving the requirements of competitive bidding, and staff proceeded to solicit three bids from contractors for the repair work.  The Mayor is authorized to sign the contract per City Council approval; however, the low bid of $329,515.95 was more than the approved budget of $250,000, and a budget adjustment was needed.  The slope failure will be repaired by a contractor for the City beginning Monday July 22, 2013.  The contractor will have 55 working days from the start date to complete the work.
