Local company Cypress Paving has been awarded the contracts for the supply and placing of asphaltic concrete and asphaltic hot mix in 2014.
The city usually has two contracts regarding asphalt. The first is the asphalt in place contract, which deals with placing new asphalt for rehabilitated streets and work in new subdivisions. In 2013, the city also included major repairs in this contract such as water main breaks and service connection relays.
The second contract includes asphalt pick-up contract. Under the contract, asphalt materials are provided for city crews to do patching of potholes and small excavations.
This year, Cypress Paving detailed their offer to supply and place asphaltic concrete and provide hot mix asphaltic concrete for pickup. They also included a quote for the major repair work in 2014.
Their proposal indicates a 3.5 per cent increase in unit prices for both contracts from 2013. An additional 0.5 per cent increase is also proposed for the road repair unit price. The estimated value of the contracts is $3.24 million.
