RESOLUTION NO. 070499

 

Urging the State of Missouri to authorize the use of sole source contracting methods should only a single bid be received for the construction of a new bridge over the Missouri River.

 

WHEREAS, the Paseo Bridge is over 50 years old and in need of significant rehabilitation or replacement; and

 

WHEREAS, improvements through the State kcICON project are a priority with $195 million dollars identified through State Amendment 3 funding and an additional $50 million from federal SAFETEA-LU funds; and

 

WHEREAS, the need for improvements to the kcICON project area, generally identified as the I-29 and I-35 corridor between Missouri Highway 210 north-east corner of the downtown loop crossing the Missouri River via the Paseo Bridge, is immediate to handle the current 102,000 vehicles using the corridor each day and the future increase in traffic; and

 

WHEREAS, in the event of a single bid for the work in the kcICON project area the State must be prepared to move with dispatch to commence the project without further delay; and

 

WHEREAS, the State of Missouri may be authorized to enter into a sole source negotiation process when appropriate to meet the immediate needs of the people of the State; and

 

WHEREAS, the construction of improvements for crossing the Missouri River in the kcICON project area is an important and essential need of the people of the State and of the Kansas City metropolitan area; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council urge the State of Missouri to authorize the use of sole source contracting should competitive bids not be received for the construction of a new Missouri River crossing in the kcICON project area.
