Lowndes Hill Slip Remediation Project
The Lowndes Hill Slip Remediation Project was advertised for bid in late July, 2018 while the pre-bid meeting was held August 7, 2018 in the City Manager’s conference room. A pre-bid meeting allows contractors who have taken interest in a project to review the scope of the project with both city officials and Ascent Consulting and Engineering, the Engineer on the project. A bid opening was then held on August 14, 2018 and 2 bids were received. Cove Run Contracting was awarded the bid as they were the lowest responsible bidder. Clarksburg City Council approved Cove Run Contracting at their meeting held August 16, 2018, and a contract signing was held August 30, 2018 where Cove Run Contracting was also issued a Notice to Proceed. Work on the project began the first week of September, 2018 and the project was completed at the end of October, 2018. Construction of the project consisted of Traffic Control, Clearing and Grubbing, Erosion and Sediment Control, Seeding and Mulching, 1,000 Cubic Yard Earthwork, 574 Liner Feet of misc. drainage pipe, 50 Tons of clean #57 aggregate, asphalt pavement, concrete curb, and 1,080 Square Feet of sheet piling. The total cost of the project including engineering is $229,840. The east side of the Lowndes Hill project was eligible for FEMA reimbursement. The funds were obligated through FEMA due to the damage being caused by a storm that occurred in February 2018. The federal share that has been obligated to the City of Clarksburg is 75% while State’s share is 25%. The total cost of the FEMA reimbursement portion of the project, including engineering, is $199,125, which will ultimately be reimbursed to the City of Clarksburg.
