Roswell OKs additional $118K for Norcross culvert work

The Roswell City Council has approved a $118,119 change order to its contract with Site Engineering to cover additional costs for the Norcross Street culvert replacement project.

The project’s original funding of $230,286 included $25,000 to address unforeseen circumstances, according to a staff report to the council.

Additional funds were required to remove unsuitable material and replace it with structural fill ($84,325), pay traffic control costs ($23,794), replace a section of sanitary sewer ($3,500), and make a field adjustment due to an AT&T fiber optic line ($6,500), staff said.

Norcross Street was closed March 13 and reopened March 27, on schedule, as a failing culvert was replaced with a new, 48-inch, reinforced concrete pipe culvert. Also, a headwall and two double-wing catch basins were replaced, and a storm sewer junction box and a manhole were installed.
