Title
Resolution to Authorize Execution of Change Order No. 1 to the Construction Contract with J. Ranck Electric, Inc. (Bid No. 4504) for the Installation of additional RRFBs ($100,000.00)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to authorize execution of a change order to the City's contract with J. Ranck Electric, Inc. (J. Ranck), to add $100,000.00 to the project cost, in exchange for J. Ranck's installation of additional rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs) at four additional City crosswalks.

As background, RRFBs heighten driver awareness of pedestrians crossing major streets and thereby improve pedestrian safety. The 2013 Non-Motorized Plan Update identified 20 potential RRFB locations around the City. Staff prioritized these (and other locations) and evaluated their suitability for RRFBs.

* Fuller Road at Fuller Park*
* South Maple Road at Pennsylvania Ave
* Green Road at Greenbrier Blvd.
* Packard Road at Hikone

* RRFBs at this location were planned for installation in the Fall 2017. However, additional hardware was needed for Eisenhower at Northbrook, so this location is being postponed until the spring.

J. Ranck is, to the City's knowledge, in compliance with the requirements of the City's Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.
