Capital Improvement Plan FY 2020/21 - 2024/25

ONGOING PROJECTS:

San Pablo Avenue Vehicle Bridge - Multiyear project

This is a long term project to replace the San Pablo Avenue bridge over BNSF Railroad.  The bridge is the only direct route to the City of Hercules without using the freeway. The most recent State bridge inspection details deficiencies that support the structure being replaced. The City of Pinole was approved for initial funding from the State Highway Bridge Program. The City has selected Quincy Engineering to prepare the preliminary plans. City Staff is working now on a revision to the funding allocations as we have learned that BNSF will require a larger clear zone resulting in a longer more costly bridge.

CCTV and Manhole Inspections of Sanitary Sewer Pipes
In preparation of a street resurfacing project, the City released an RFP on July 22, 2020 to solicit the assistance of qualified and experienced firms to perform internal CCTV inspection of approximately 2,900 ft. sanitary sewer mains and manhole inspections on Tennent Ave from San Pablo Ave. to Railroad Ave. and 0.04 mile section North of Railroad Ave. at the end of the railroad tracks. 

Coordinating collection system improvements with street resurfacing projects ensures that sewer improvements are made prior to the resurfacing so that manholes and valve covers may be properly realigned, and repairs and replacements are made in a cost-effective manner. This also avoids cutting and patching recently paved streets. 

On October 19, 2020, Pipe and Plant Solutions, Inc. was awarded a contract for this project. The inspection is expected to begin on January 4, 2021 - January 6, 2021 between 4 am and noon. The final report for this project is expected by January 27, 2021. 

Sewer Collection System Rehabilitation - Inflow and Infiltration Reduction
The City released an RFP on May 6, 2020 to solicit the assistance of an engineering consulting firm to focus on the areas of the collection system that need attention immediately to reduce inflow and infiltration,  address capacity issues, and address aging infrastructure.

On September 1, 2020, Carollo Engineers was selected to prepare a Sanitary Sewer Collection System Master Plan.

Local Road Safety Plan
In July 2020, City submitted a grant application to Caltrans for funding to develop and implement a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP). A LRSP allows the City to identify, analyze, and prioritize roadway improvements on roads. On October 2, 2020, the City was selected for funding and implementation of  LRSP. 

On December 17, 2020,  the City released an RFP to solicit the assistance of an engineering consultant firm to develop the LRSP. Steps to develop the LRSP will include an existing conditions assessment, and development of traffic measures in the areas of engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, emerging technologies along with associated evaluation. The LRSP will include a prioritized list of roadway infrastructure improvements in the City. 

The City anticipates awarding a contract in February 2021.
