|The Illinois Tollway (THA) is giving notice to amend it's contract with exp US Services, Inc., (with full Board Approval). This professional engineering construction management contract is overseeing work associated with the bridge and ramp reconstruction at Illinois Route 25 Interchange on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90). This supplement provides for additional staffing hours necessary to allow the construction manager to oversee the final documentation, closeout of the final contract quantities, and all other closeout activities. |
This contract for construction management services was advertised on PSB 13-1 on 2/27/13, IPB# 22030188. The contract with exp US Services, Inc. was awarded by the Tollway Board on 12/19/13 via board resolution 20185 in the amount of $4,999,060.81
The amendment in the amount of $133,500.00 increases the contract value to $5,132,560.81 and is necessary as work was advanced requiring additional staffing/coordination to not delay the adjacent Fox River Bridge contract. Additional hours were needed to inspect the construction during the acceleration periods and through the winter months, which was not anticipated. In addition, the construction contract work was extended into 2017 and the closeout activities extended into 2018 (approximately 12 months beyond the negotiated/estimated end of CM service). This amendment provides for additional staffing hours necessary to allow the construction manager to oversee the final documentation, determine the final contract quantities and complete all other closeout activities.
