The City of Clarksburg has been remediating 10 road slip projects due to embankment failures throughout the City of Clarksburg. There are 7 active or completed projects and 3 projects that are being monitored throughout the 2018-2019 winter season.
The Request For Proposals for engineering services on all slips went out April 13, 2018 and all proposals were due by April 30, 2018. All of the Engineers who provided proposals were interviewed the week of May 10, 2018 by the City Administration. Each Engineering Firm that was interviewed was assigned 2 slip remediation projects. Clarksburg City Council approved Ascent Consulting and Engineering at their regularly scheduled Council meeting held on May 17, 2018, while all other project Engineers were approved during Council’s meeting on June 7, 2018. Project Engineers that were approved at the June, 7 2018 Council meeting were: Hornor Brothers Engineers, Terradon Corporation, Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc., The Thrasher Group, and Ascent Consulting and Engineering.
The Upper Winding Way Slip Remediation Project was advertised for bid in mid-October 2018. A pre-bid meeting was held October 23, 2018 in the City Manager’s Conference Room. This meeting allows contractors who have taken interest in a project to review the scope of the project with both city officials and Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc., the Engineer on the project. A bid opening was then held October 30, 2018 where 1 bid was received. Rock Forge Bridge Company was awarded the bid by Clarksburg City Council on November 1, 2018. On November 16, 2018 a contract signing took place and a Notice to Proceed was issued. The Upper Winding Way Slip Remediation Project will consist of constructing 96 linear feet of piling and lagging wall as well as repairing approximately 200 linear feet of roadway. Rock Forge had communicated with the City of Clarksburg that the project would be delayed as utility companies needed to reroute the utility lines and install new poles. The contractor is currently awaiting completion of this to commence work at the location. The total cost of the Upper Winding Way Slip Remediation Project, including engineering, is estimated at $392,000. The City anticipates this project being completed by summer 2019.
