|The Illinois Toll Highway Authority (THA) is giving its notice of intent to amend its contract with Plote/Dunnet Bay Joint Venture to provide for Double Handle 4640 Surplus Earthen Material-Balance for work related to Mainline Pavt & Prospect Bridges.|
Contract Award Amount – $52,973,667.81
Description – The circumstances said to necessitate the change in performance were not reasonably foreseeable at the time the contract was signed. The surplus of suitable earthen materials on 4640 was not known by the Tollway or Contractor when the 4642 contract was bid. The change is germane to the original contact as signed. The 4642 is short on balance for earthen materials. Using earthen materials from outside of the contract limits is included in the bid contract.
