The City of Orlando is entering into a Quiet Zone Improvement Agreement Amendment Number 1, with the State of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in accordance with their Adopted Five Year Work Program, to undertake and complete the Quiet Zone Improvements Project.
The Project consists of the design and construction of quiet zone improvements located within the geographic limits of the SunRail corridor. FDOT will perform the necessary preliminary engineering, prepare any and all design plans, perform the construction, provide all necessary engineering supervision, and otherwise perform all other necessary work, as may be applicable for the Quiet Zone Improvements as described in the scope of work (Exhibit A).
FDOT recently obtained a proposal to undertake the Quiet Zone work within the City of Orlando; the current estimated total cost of the project is $5,125,863, which is higher than the original estimate. FDOT has requested to consolidate the agreements previously approved by City Council on June 15, 2015, and June 20, 2016, with the amounts of $1,580,164 and $300,000 respectively. The proposed amendment will also reflect FDOT’s additional contribution, from the initial contribution of $974,198 to $3,245,699, covering the remaining balance of the project. The City of Orlando’s funding commitment will not change from prior arrangements.
If the accepted bid amount for the Quiet Zone Improvements is in excess of the Project Estimate amount, FDOT and the City of Orlando will cooperate to reduce the Project Scope so that the bid amount does not exceed the Project Estimate.
Approval of the Quiet Zone Improvement Agreement between the State of Florida Department of Transportation “FDOT” and the City of Orlando, in substantially the form attached, and authorization for the Mayor or Mayor Pro Tem to execute same, subject to review and approval by the Office of Legal Affairs.
