Bids will be accepted March 29 for rehabilitation work on the two-tiered roadway at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
The contract is estimated at $1.4 million.
The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority is seeking the bids for the rehabilitation project, which includes spray application of a waterproofing membrane to 3,278 square yards of deck surfaces, pressure-washing below-deck concrete, and protective sealant application on 4,000 square feet of structural concrete.
The work provides for the rehabilitation of the airport’s two-tier roadway at both the departures and arrivals levels. The project involves structural concrete rehabilitation, addition of structural steel beams, concrete deck milling, asphalt pavement milling, spray-applied membrane, asphalt wearing surface overlay, expansion joint rehabilitation, sidewalk rehabilitation, drainage structure reconstruction, and cleaning concrete surfaces.
Night-time construction operations will be used to minimize disruption of airport operations. Traffic will be maintained throughout construction. Work must be completed within 130 calendar days after receipt of the Notice to Proceed.
Liquidated damages in the amount of $1,000 per calendar day will be assessed against the contractor for failure to complete the project within the time specified. Strict penalties apply for failure to open travel lanes by the designated time at the end of nightly operations.
The airport dates to the 1920s, but a new 15-gate, $56 million terminal opened in November 1997. Passenger growth in the last two years has exceeded 10% annually.
