SUBJECT: NORMAN Y. MINETA SAN JOSE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: CARGO RAMP SECURITY AND TAXIWAY IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT – AGREEMENT WITH SAN JOSE WATER COMPANY
Approval of an agreement with San Jose Water Company for relocation of existing water facilities for the Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport - Cargo Ramp Security and Taxiway Improvements Project for a total amount not to exceed $321,090.
CEQA: Resolution No. 67380 and 71451, PP 03-04-136.
On June 17, 2003, Council awarded a construction contract to R & L Brosamer, Inc. for the Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport – Cargo Ramp Security and Taxiway Improvements (CRSTI) Project in the amount of $9,664,860. The cost of this agreement is included as an allowance paid by the City to R & L Brosamer under the construction contract for the CRSTI project.
The CRSTI Project will construct taxiway and aircraft parking ramp areas in the southeast and northeast areas of the airfield, as well as an extension of Taxiway “Z” to the south. The taxiway extension conflicts with an existing 12-inch diameter water line owned and operated by the San Jose Water Company. The San Jose Water Company requested that the line be relocated to resolve the conflict.
Under this agreement, the San Jose Water Company will be paid by R & L Brosamer for costs necessary to construct 740 feet of 12-inch diameter water line in Airport Boulevard around the southeast corner of the Airport (see attached map) and to retire 380 feet of water line located in the airfield. R & L Brosamer will be responsible to coordinate the scheduling of work by the San Jose Water Company with the work on the CRSTI Project.
The San José Municipal Code requires that capital projects at the Airport be consistent with the adopted Airport Master Plan. The Taxiway Z Extension is explicitly identified as a part of "Project A-28,” the Interim North Cargo Ramp Extension is explicitly identified as a part of "Project C-1,” and the Interim Southeast Cargo Ramp is a related component of the Central Terminal construction program (amended "Project T-5"). The overall project is therefore consistent with the adopted Airport Master Plan pursuant to Municipal Code Sections 25.04.210(B)(1) and 25.04.210(B)(2).
This agreement and memo have been coordinated with the Airport Department, City Manager’s Budget Office and City Attorney's Office.
As discussed above, funding for this agreement with the San Jose Water Company is included as an allowance paid by the City to R & L Brosamer under the construction contract for the CRSTI project. This construction contract was awarded on June 17, 2003.
Resolution No. 67380 and 71451, PP 03-04-136.
