The California Department of Transportation has awarded an $881,622.73 contract to Ashron Construction & Restoration Inc. of Mountain View, CA, for coatings removal, cleaning and painting inside the Randolph Collier Tunnel under Oregon Mountain.
Ashron was the second-lowest bidder on the project. The $762,496 low bid submitted by Industrial Coating & Restoration Services of Oceanside, CA, was rejected because the company did not meet the contract requirements for Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises. The DVBE contract goal was 5 percent; Industrial Coating listed participation of 3 percent.
The painting and cleaning contract had been estimated at $720,000. A third bidder, Coast Construction Inc. of San Rafael, CA, submitted a bid for $1.089 million.
Scope of Work
The project involves cleaning and painting concrete surfaces inside the two-lane, 1,886-foot tunnel in Del Norte County, about three miles south of the Oregon border.
The project includes cleaning and coating 122,100 square feet of concrete with an acrylic emulsion system. Cracks in concrete must be repaired before painting, and paint must be removed from concrete surfaces before repairs begin. The project also includes cleaning 129,900 square feet of concrete surfaces.
The work must be completed within 130 working days.
The existing coatings contain lead; all debris produced when the existing paint system is disturbed must be contained.
The project also requires controlling potential sources of water pollution before they come in contact with storm water systems or watercourses.
The tunnel, named for the powerful California state senator who shepherded the project, carries US Highway 199 (the Redwood Highway) under Oregon Mountain. The tunnel opened in 1963 after three years of construction.
The tunnel provided the first direct route from northwest Nevada to the Pacific Ocean. It also eliminated the route over the summit's 128 curves and hairpin switchbacks, and made the highway passable in snowy weather.
