Oklahoma City streetcar system construction differences resolved

By William CrumOklahoma City's MAPS 3 office has reached a $675,000 agreement with the streetcar system contractor, Herzog/Stacy & Witbeck, to resolve "contested" items and costs associated with special requests that cropped up during construction.One significant dispute was over whether specifications allowed for aggregate mixed with recycled concrete to be installed beneath the track bed.The city said aggregate containing no recycled concrete was required and is paying the contractor $115,000 to resolve the question.The city also had the contractor move operations at various times to accommodate downtown events, resulting in increased overhead.The city is paying $211,000 to compensate for those costs and an additional $143,300 for the contractor's costs in closing out the project.With the system essentially complete, the cost to install the 6.9 miles of service track, overhead poles and wires, electrical substations, boarding platforms and related equipment stands at $56.1 million.Herzog/Stacy & Witbeck's original bid to build the system was $50 million.The project is financed by revenue from the MAPS 3 sales tax approved by voters in December 2009.The streetcar will begin service next month, nine years after voters gave the OK.
