Alameda Corridor authority obtains bids for Baldwin Avenue grade separation work


Last week, the Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority (ACE) received four bids for work associated with the Baldwin Avenue grade separation in El Monte, Calif.

The bids cover such work as sewer, water and utility casings; bridge foundation and wall piles; a pedestrian bridge and roadway section; sewer siphon and precast girders; storm drain realignment; street lighting; and signal modifications.

Sully-Miller Contracting Co. submitted the lowest bid at $21,297,495. The other bidders were USS Cal Builders Inc., $23,944,163; Brutoco Engineering & Construction Inc., $24,866,327; and Powell Constructors Inc., $24,973,379.

The $80.5 million project calls for constructing a double-track rail bridge over a four-lane depressed roadway on Baldwin Avenue between Rose Avenue and Gidley Street. Baldwin Avenue will be lowered beneath a Union Pacific Railroad line.

The California Transportation Commission has allocated $37.6 million in state bond funds for the project, which is designed to eliminate a congested grade crossing on a busy thoroughfare that connects two freeways.

The Baldwin Avenue project is part of an ACE program that calls for constructing 22 grade separations in the San Gabriel Valley along a corridor used to move cargo to and from San Pedro Bay ports.
