The board voted to approve a change order to the Orange County Access Road/Rail Overpass Project. The change order will resolve an issue with a drain line in conflict with the project, and will increase the project cost by $20,221.
The contract now totals $9,694,912.
The board voted to amend the port’s 2016-2017 Capital Program to include additional projects.
“One project is the Old Highway 90 right turn lane project,” Fisher said. “This is a project we are in the process of working on in conjunction with TxDOT (Texas Department of Transportation).”
That project is estimated to total $700,000. The port is also adding an $800,000 project for improvements to the Harbor Island sheds.
All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
