Phase III - Final Design
Task No. 1 - Schedule Third Utility Meeting
When the plans are approximately 80 percent complete or at the stage where the Street horizontal and vertical alignment and the stormsewer profiles have been approved, the third utility meeting will be scheduled by the Consultant/Project Manager. A pre-meeting agenda shall be distributed and meeting minutes prepared.
Note: In an effort to avoid scheduling conflicts with other called utility meetings an Outlook calendar has been created called PW Utilities. PW Utilities shall be invited as an attendee to all utility meetings, pre-bid conferences and pre-construction conferences or any meeting requesting utility company attendance.
See Phase II, Task No. 9 for exhibits.
The primary purpose of this meeting is to confirm what utilities need to be relocated, and establish if the facility is located in public R/W / easements or private easements. Determine whether KCPL streetlights are to be removed and replaced with City streetlights. Also, the project schedule will be reviewed and a time frame for relocating utility facilities will be addressed. If utilities requiring relocation are in private easements the project manager shall request relocation plans, a detailed cost estimate of relocations, a relocation schedule, a marked-up set of plan sheets highlighting existing utility locations, existing easement locations with book and page, and copies of easement documents.
