Mount Prospect Public Works Department <br />INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM <br />TO: VILLAGE MANAGER MICHAEL JANONIS <br />FROM: PROJECT ENGINEER <br />DATE: APRIL 9, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: BUSSE ROAD & LONNQUIST BOULEVARD PEDESTRIAN CROSSING IMPROVEMENTS <br />CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT AWARD - $49,900.00 <br />Background <br />The Village of Mount Prospect in cooperation with the Cook County Department of Transportation & Highways <br />is set to improve the pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Busse Road and Lonnquist Boulevard this <br />summer. Earlier this year, the two agencies entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement as a condition of the <br />project. This was approved by the Village Board and signed by the Mayor. The final construction cost will be <br />split 50/50 between the Village and County. The Village will oversee construction and pay the entire cost to the <br />contractor. The County will then reimburse the Village half the final cost after receiving an invoice from the <br />Village. <br />The pedestrian crossing improvements include a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system. This is a <br />fairly new device that uses an irregular flash pattern of LED lights directed at traffic when a button is pressed by <br />a waiting pedestrian or bicyclist. In addition, the project will include new signs, pavement markings, and <br />improved sidewalk ramps to accommodate both pedestrians and bicyclists. <br />Bids Results <br />At 1:00 p.m. on March 24 sealed bids were publicly opened and read aloud for the Busse Road & Lonnquist <br />Boulevard Pedestrian Crossing Improvement Project.
