Caltrans District 8 is hosting a Mandatory Pre-Bid Meeting for the Halloran Wash Bridge Rehabilitation project (08-0J9304). Caltrans is seeking qualified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms to participate in this project and attend this important meeting.
The project will be to construct continuous footing bents in a fill wall and upstream nose protection, and column struts.  Due to the size of boulders in the runoff caused by heavy thunderstorms in this desert region, it has been determined that the existing columns need to be protected by creating a bull nose shape to deflect large rocks for the columns.  Additionally to prevent scour from the wash undermining the columns, continuous footings and column struts have also been incorporated to protect the structure.
Construction cost estimate is $530,000 with anticipated support work in from Small Businesses:

  • Fencing, Environmental Sensitive Area Fence (ESA)
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Traffic Control/ Delineation
  • Structure Steel Contractor
  • Drill/Bond Dowels Contractor
  • Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)/Erosion Control
  • Water Truck Services
  • False Work Contractor
  • Concrete Pump(s)
  • Clean & Paint Structure Steel
  • Asphalt Contractor

All prime contractors (and firms who desire to bid as a prime contractor) are required to attend this meeting. Prime Contractors should be prepared to network with small business and DBE firms at this event and bring requisite collateral materials. For Prime Contractors, the bidder’s representative must be a company officer, project superintendent, or project estimator.
