Staff Summary: Background The City of Miami Gardens received $2,516,740 in American Recovery and Reinvestment (ARRA) stimulus funds through the Florida Department of Transportation for the City’s roads that are designated by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). These roads are also designated as emergency ITEM K-4) CONSENT AGENDA RESOLUTION Agreement w/FDOT 1515 NW 167 Street, Building 5 Suite 200 Miami Gardens, Florida 33169 roads (ER) by the US Department of Transportation; therefore, this funding can only be used for FHWAER roads. In 2010, Council approved three (3) road projects for resurfacing, sidewalk repairs/installation, and guardrail repairs. All three projects have been completed. After these projects were completed, unspent funds from the total ARRA allocation were allocated to replace the NW 42 Avenue (cross streets: NW 178 Drive and NW 179 Street) Bridge to include the bridge sidewalks, re‐alignment of the road, guardrail, street lighting (bridge construction area), and any drainage issues. The existing bridge has had safety issues for children walking to school and vehicles constantly hitting the guardrail because of road mis‐alignment, lighting issues, and being too steep for crossing visibility. Current Situation The Local Agency Project (LAP) agreement for this project was approved by Council under Resolution # 2011‐119‐1512. FDOT requires the City to execute an amendment to the original agreement in which the City agrees to pay the difference in the project cost. The difference, in the amount of $53,658, has been allocated in the City’s Stormwater Fund, and it was approved by Council under the aforementioned resolution. Proposed Action: It is recommended that the City Council approve the attached resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute the LAP amendment and all other required documents associated with this project.
