Raymond Road Bridge Design Award
Submitted For: John Midgley
FROM: Kristine Parsons, Engineering Director, Road Department
Department: Road Department  

Information
RESOLUTION:
Resolved that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners does hereby approve Wightman’s Proposal for Design Engineering services for the rehabilitation of the Raymond Road Bridge (Structure #1317) over the MDOT Railroad corridor within Emmett Township, Calhoun County. 
 
RECOMMENDATION:
It is the recommendation of the Road Department that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners approve this proposal from Wightman for the bridge design of the Raymond Road Bridge over the MDOT railroad corridor.
 
BACKGROUND:
In 2019, CCRD was awarded $1,129,000 in Fiscal Year 2022 funds for the rehabilitation of the Raymond Road Bridge over the MDOT Rail Corridor in Emmett Township as part of the MDOT Local Bridge Program.  Since CCRD does not have a licensed structural engineer on staff, the design plans & bid package for this project must be prepared by a consultant, so this work was put out for competitive bid.  Bids were received from three consultants, with the low bidder being Wightman & Associates at $32,000.
 
ALTERNATIVES:
The Board could choose not to approve this Proposal; if so, the Local Bridge Program funds will be forfeited & the bridge will continue to deteriorate under its current conditions.
