Approve Acceptance of Project for Propane Refueling Station at Lois Avenue

The Board previously approved the purchase of propane fuel buses, and a fixed propane refueling capability was required.  District staff selected Long & Associates Architects/Engineers, Inc. and Batson-Cook Construction to provide design and construction management services for a project to add propane refueling to the existing diesel fuel station at Transportation's Lois Avenue facility.  The project scope included relocation of the existing diesel dispensers at the site to improve traffic flow, and adds paving, site lighting and a canopy over both diesel and propane dispensers to improve operations and driver working conditions.

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.
