December 19, 2019 -- The Santa Monica City Council on Tuesday approved a $1.35 million contract to repair broken sidewalks across the city.

Under the $1,352,450 contract, California-based Caliba Inc. will remove and reconstruct 45,000 square feet of sidewalks and 3,000 square feet of driveways, according to staff.

The contractor will also remove and replace 500 linear feet of curbs, 750 linear feet of curbs and gutters, 200 square feet of cross gutters and 100 square feet of curb ramps.

In addition, some 28,000 square feet of stabilized decomposed granite walkways will be removed and reconstructed, according to staff.

The City will distribute notifications to residents and business owners at adjacent and nearby properties "detailing the scope of the project, potential impacts, construction schedule, and contact information for the construction manager," staff said.

The locations slated for repairs were determined by the City’s Engineering and Street Services Division, which conducts annual sidewalk inspections for business districts and triennial sidewalk inspections.

City staff will inspect the contractor’s work during construction, "verifying and documenting unforeseen conditions and changes requested by the contractor or City staff."

Staff also will monitor and mitigate impacts due to construction activities, attend safety and periodic progress meetings with the contractor and maintain inspection documentation, staff said.

Caliba Inc was chosen "based on its demonstrated quality of work on past projects and experience with similar projects for the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, and Stanton," staff said.

The lowest bidder, S&H Civilworks, withdrew their bid "due to a mathematical error when calculating their total bid price."

The City of Santa Monica maintains a vast network of approximately 368 miles of public sidewalks.

Weekly construction updates will be posted on the City’s Know Before You Go (KBUG) website
