The Pine Knoll Flagstaff Urban Trail System (FUTS) trail project is located between South San Francisco Street and Lone Tree Road in South Flagstaff and is adjacent to Northern Arizona University and Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) Kinsey School. Project improvements include installation of a 10' FUTS trail on the north side of Pine Knoll Drive and new roadway improvements including asphalt reconstruction, curb/gutter, and bicycle lanes.
The original IGA (SF01201C/01D/02C) was approved by City Council on February 5, 2013 in the amount of $400,128 for design and construction. Amendment #1 was approved on October 1, 2013 in the amount of $90,897 which approved additional costs for the design consultant services and that funding was provided by federal funds at no expense to the City.
The additional funding requested today will provide for full removal and replacement of roadway asphalt and a widened intersection at Lone Tree Road. These improvements are City-driven requests for scope expansion due to the degraded condition of the roadway and the need for improved operations at the intersection.
The original IGA states in Scope of Work, Section 2.d. that the City will be entirely responsible for all costs incurred in performing and accomplishing the work that exceed the federal funds available. The City has planned and budgeted the requested funds to adhere to the agreement with ADOT.
