§                     Work in the city right-of-way often requires temporary traffic control to provide protection for workers, motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists.

§                     Contracted traffic control services provide city crews the opportunity to focus on completing repairs or existing projects without allocating staff or devices to traffic control activities such as flagging and lane closures. Contracted traffic control services also allow the city to maintain fewer signs, cones, and barricades in its inventory.

§                     On November 1, 2023, the city issued a Request for Proposals (RFP); three proposals were received.

§                     GDC, Inc. dba GDC Supplies Equipment and Contracting LLC best meets the city’s needs based on demonstrated competence and qualification of professional services in response to the RFP requirements.

§                     Price adjustments may be considered based on legitimate and justified increases in the cost of doing business.

§                     Annual expenditures are estimated to be $600,000.
