City Council
Meeting Date: 03/11/2019  
Submitted For: Steve Commons Submitted By: Steve Commons, City Manager's Office

Information
Item
Approval of a Supplemental Appropriation for the implementation of a Quiet Zone along all the railroad crossings within the City of Edmond; $2,900,000.
Background
The City has received the cost estimates from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad to implement the Quiet Zone.  The total cost for the project is $3.5 million. ($2.9 million is needed in the current budget year and the remaining $600,000 in the new budget year)  The following items represent the basis for the transfer of appropriation request: 
  • Contract with BNSF to install the signal equipment for the Quiet Zone - $2,649,385
  • Contract with CTC to design the construction improvements which need to be provided by the City at each crossing $216,257
Time Frame
Contract will be initiated to complete the work over the next 12 months.
Issue
Originally when the budget for the current fiscal year was established we did not know when we would be able to proceed with the Quiet Zone.  The information on the costs has been received and is in an acceptable budget range to proceed. Contracts are also ready for execution to get the project started.
Recommendations
The Supplemental Appropriation was recommended for approval at a Special Meeting of the CIP Advisory Board at their meeting on February 26.
Action Needed
Approval of Supplemental Appropriation.
