Approve Acceptance of Project Bus Parking Stabilization at Airport Road
To improve Transportation Department operations and staff working conditions, improvement and expansion of the bus compound located on Airport Road in Plant City was required.  District staff selected Long & Associates Architects/ Engineers, Inc. from the approved Continuing Services Consultants list to provide design services.  On May 10, 2017, the Board awarded a contract for construction to  Alto Construction Co., Inc.  The scope of work included a paved access road, stabilized bus parking, stormwater management facilities and site lighting.  Upon completion of the development, the site provided parking capacity for 427 buses.

The design professional has certified that the work is complete in accordance with the plans and specifications and other contract documents and recommends Board Acceptance.
