Review/Approve Cedarburg Shop's Cold Storage Building Bids The Ozaukee County Highway Department sought bids to construct a Cold Storage building at the Cedarburg Shop. The project is being funded through the Highway Department s Building Capital Improvement Program (CIP), and has an approved budget of $125,000. The Ozaukee County Highway Department received one bid from JH Hassinger Construction Services despite contacting numerous other construction companies. JH Hassinger s total bid was $322,700, which was $267,000 for labor and equipment and $55,000 for owner purchased materials. Based upon the lack of bids and the higher than budget cost, Highway Staff recommends rejecting all bids. The bid documents should be modified and the project re-bid over winter for Spring 2015 construction. Discussion on the lack of bid response and high cost. Motion to reject all bids and modify bid documents to re-bid for Spring PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE RESULT: APPROVED [UNANIMOUS] MOVER: Donald Korinek, Supervisor District 13 SECONDER: LeRoy Haeuser, Supervisor District 19 AYES: Geracie, Haeuser, Korinek EXCUSED: Slater, Rishel 3. Review/Approve CTH T (Lakefield Road) & Green Bay Road Engineering Contract The intersection of CTH T (Lakefield Road) & Green Bay Road is a busy, four-way stop intersection that is a consistent maintenance issue. Mr. Edgren explained the condition of the road and the impact from the truck traffic. Minutes Acceptance: Minutes of Sep 18, :00 AM (Approval of Minutes ) Highway staff applied for Local Road Improvement Program (LRIP) funds towards reconstructing the intersection in concrete. LRIP funds will reimburse the County up to 50% of the cost for engineering and construction of the intersection. Page 4 of 7 Updated 9/21/2014 Packet 8:24 Pg. PM 7

8 Minutes Public Works Committee September 18, a The first step is hiring an engineer to survey the intersection in fall, and design the intersection in winter. Then the project can be bid in late winter to give the County the most advantageous bids. Based upon a long standing relationship with the County, their ability to design projects efficiently and effectively, and having completed a near identical project at CTH D & CTH LL for the County, Highway Staff requested an Engineering Proposal from Gremmer & Associates. An explanation on how and when road closure would occur was given. Motion to approve the Engineering Contract with Gremmer & Associates for a cost of $27,000. PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE RESULT: APPROVED [UNANIMOUS] MOVER: LeRoy Haeuser, Supervisor District 19 SECONDER: Donald Korinek, Supervisor District 13 AYES: Geracie, Haeuser, Korinek EXCUSED: Slater, Rishel 4. Review/Approve CTH W (Meijer Project) Invoice Ozaukee County partnered with the Village of Grafton, through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), to cost-share for the reconstruction of CTH W (Port Washington Road) as a part of the Meijer Development project. The agreement called for Ozaukee County to be responsible for 10% of the construction costs, which were estimated to be $90,000. The $90,000 was originally budgeted in 2013, and rolled over into Several months ago, Mr. Dreblow reported that the cost would exceed the projected $90,000, estimated at that time to be $110,000. Following completion of the project, the Village of Grafton analyzed the construction costs, and determined that the total construction was more than estimated. Therefore, the Village has billed the County for $115, The Village of Grafton s invoice appears reasonable, and the Highway Department has cost savings from other projects to cover the $25, shortage. Minutes Acceptance: Minutes of Sep 18, :00 AM (Approval of Minutes ) Motion to approve the Village of Grafton s invoice as submitted. Page 5 of 7 Updated 9/21/2014 Packet 8:24 Pg. PM 8

23 Public Works Committee AGENDA INFORMATION SHEET 8.a.1 AGENDA DATE: November 20, 2014 DEPARTMENT: Highway DIRECTOR: Bob Dreblow PREPARER: Jon Edgren Agenda Summary Review/Approve Ordinance - Speed Limit Reduction County Trunk Highway C, Town of Grafton BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) contacted the Ozaukee County Highway Department in fall to discuss lowering the speed limit along County Trunk Highway (CTH) C from CTH W (Port Washington Road) to the east about 2,000-feet, beyond the CTH C Park & Ride. As WisDOT is in process of designing the reconstruction of I-43, they also reviewed the overpass bridges contained within the project area. As WisDOT reviewed the CTH C bridge and surrounding area, they found that the interchange doesn t meet minimum design standards at a 45 MPH Speed Limit. If WisDOT reconstructed the entire interchange to meet design standards, the CTH C & CTH W Intersection would need to be raised and would subsequently necessitate the raising and replacement of box culverts for Ulao Creek. However, if the Speed Limit is reduced to 35 MPH, then the surrounding area can mostly stay as currently constructed. (See the attached Speed Study for additional information.) ANALYSIS: Based upon the Speed Study and desire to minimize reconstruction of the CTH C/I- 43 Interchange area, we believe the Speed Limit reduction is warranted from CTH W to east of the CTH C Park & Ride. FISCAL IMPACT: N/A FUNDING SOURCE: N/A RECOMMENDED MOTION: Approve the CTH C Speed Limit reduction as given, and forward to the County Board for an ordinance revision.

CTH C runs over I-43, and its existing vertical curve is substandard for the existing posted and design speed (45 mph / 50 mph). We have received a number of complaints from local motorists about the poor sight distance from the off ramps to CTH C, and officials from Ozaukee County recognize this as a problem area as well. In addition to the existing issue on CTH C, as we ve gotten further into our proposed design for this interchange, we ve found that the impacts of meeting even minimum design standards for a 50 mph vertical curve on CTH C would be great. Ulao Creek crosses CTH C about 600 west of the CTH C / Port Washington Rd., and then again about 350 north of the intersection (it runs on an angle to the northeast). Designing to 50 mph would raise this intersection significantly, which would then require the replacement of both of these Ulao Creek box culverts. As a high-quality waterway, we re required to avoid impacts to it whenever possible. Since we have an alternative that effectively avoids impacts, the Army Corps of Engineers and the DNR might be reluctant to approve a design that does not do so. If we establish the speed limit at 35 mph with a 40 mph design speed, we won t impact the box culverts at all, and there s an outside possibility we can avoid reconstructing the CTH C / Port Washington Rd. intersection as well. If that turns out to be the case, our project staging at this interchange will be greatly simplified. Attachment: CTH C - WisDOT 35 MPH Speed Study (2511 : CTH C Speed Limit) As we ve studied this corridor over the past two years, we ve met with developers and other local officials that have discussed this CTH C interchange area as more of an urban location, rather than rural. There is currently a gas station and a storage facility along the north side of CTH C west of I-43, and a park and ride lot on the north side east of I-43. Developers have various plans in the works for the south side of CTH C. Given this existing land use, motorists on CTH C drive well under the existing speed limit in the vicinity of I-43. This was confirmed by our recent speed study. Packet Pg. 27

28 Date: 9/8/ a.1.a Page 4 of 4 Speed Study Worksheet Speed Zone Declaration SZ CTHC Comments from Bob Bellin (Cont.) The Ozaukee County officials are in favor of lowering the speed limit on CTH C, primarily to address the existing safety issues out there now, and to provide a better fit for the more urban nature of the area. They ve indicated it won t be difficult to convince the Ozaukee County Board to adopt this change. We re still in the corridor study phase of this project, so we don t have a let schedule for it yet. The most likely scenario seems to be construction in the timeframe. With that being several years out yet, Ozaukee Co. would prefer to lower the speed limit ahead of our project (this year if possible). We re in favor of that as well, as it would address the existing safety concerns.

30 8.a.1.a SPEED STUDY REQUEST This speed study was prompted due to safety concerns by representatives from WisDOT. BACKGROUND Listed below are the limits for the CTH C corridor and general information about the roadway. Highway: CTH I 43 Ramps Project Limits: 900 E. of I 43 to 1800 W of I-43 Project Length: County: Municipality: AADT: Cross Section: Lane Width: Shoulder Width: METHODOLOGY Approximately 0.50 mile Ozaukee City of Mequon/City of Grafton 10,670 on CTH C at the northbound ramps, 18,360 on CTH C at the southbound ramps (Year 2011) 2-Lane Un-Divided Rural/ 4 lane Divided Rural 12 foot wide lanes 3 foot wide shoulders east of northbound ramps and 4 foot wide shoulder west of the northbound ramps The laser gun method was used to obtain the speed, recorded in miles per hour (MPH), of the approaching vehicles. The handheld device emits a laser beam that reflects off of moving vehicles. The device collects the returning beams and converts the amount of time for the beam to emit and return into an instantaneous speed measurement. A minimum sample size (number of observations) of no less than 100 vehicles per lane per direction was taken at each location. Additionally, the samples were taken during non-peak traffic hours within the weekdays of Tuesday through Thursday. These guidelines are followed to provide an accurate representation of the vehicle speeds within the study area. The intersection of CTH C and CTH W and the intersection of CTH C and I 43 northbound ramps are signalized. The intersection of CTH C and I 43 southbound ramps is a one way stop condition. All observations on the overpass and east of I 43 were taken during green signal conditions. Observations were taken on free flow conditions, when traffic was not accelerating or decelerating.

31 8.a.1.a The speed counts along CTH C were taken during the hours of 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Tuesday, May 6, Speed counts were also taken Wednesday and Thursday, May 14 and 15, 2014 as well. There were sunny skies on May 6, 2014 and cloudy skies the rest of the study. There was no precipitation occurring throughout the study period. ACCESS POINTS/FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION There are a total of six access points along CTH C where the speed study was conducted. One of those access points is a park and ride. Others include: two field entrances, two residential driveways and a business driveway. See figure 1 for locations. CTH C is classified Minor Arterial east of the I 43 northbound ramps and classified Principal Arterial from the northbound ramps of I 43 west past the study limits. Figure 1: Summary of Access Points and Functional Classification LOCATIONS CTH C CTH W Speed data was collected from four locations for both eastbound and westbound approaching vehicles traveling on CTH C. From these four locations there were six capture zones. Location #1 was on CTH C, 1800 feet west of I 43.

A percentile speed is important in determining the appropriate speed that should be posted on a given roadway. The definition of a percentile speed is the speed at or below which a certain percentage of observed traffic travels. The 85 th percentile speed is an important benchmark in setting the speed limit for a given roadway. The Wisconsin Statewide Speed Management Guidelines considers the 85 th percentile speed to best represent the reasonable and proper speed perceived by motorists and is a key characteristic of traffic conforming to a safe and reasonable speed limit. A speed limit within 5 miles per hour of the 85 th percentile speed is a good starting point for a speed limit proposal, but the analyst should consider a full range of factors when developing a recommendation. The 50 th percentile speed, or median speed, may also be of interest when reviewing speed studies. Finally, the pace speed is a range of speeds that covers the highest number of observations from a given set of data. The pace speed is generated using a ten-mile per hour range.

Last June, we bid the project, but due to complications with the Utility portion of the bid, the Public Works Committee agreed to reject all bids and re-bid the project. The Village of Fredonia has moved forward on their utility portion of CTH A/H, and is nearly complete with the water main replacement and will complete the sanitary sewer relining over the winter. Therefore, it will be appropriate to re-bid the CTH A/H Reconstruction in early In order to revise the plans and specifications to match the revised scope and timeline of the project, Ayres Associates has submitted the attached Amendment. The Amendment also covers several permits that need to be re-submitted due to the project delay. An additional amendment from Ayres Associates will be presented at a later date for the construction management of the project. However, this amendment should be addressed immediately due to the timeframe to allow bidding in early The cost of the Amendment will be split equally between the County and Village. ANALYSIS: Ayre s Associates Amendment is reasonable, and will allow the project to be bid during early 2015, which typically draws very good bid prices.

50 8.a.3 Public Works Committee AGENDA INFORMATION SHEET AGENDA DATE: November 20, 2014 DEPARTMENT: Highway DIRECTOR: Bob Dreblow PREPARER: Jon Edgren Agenda Summary Review/Approve Distributor Truck Purchase BACKGROUND INFORMATION: As part of the 2014 Highway Department Budget, the purchase of a used Distributor Truck was approved with a budget amount of $60,000. The proposed purchase would replace a 1979 L8000 Distributor truck which has significant maintenance costs and 150,000 Miles. The search for a Distributor Truck has been difficult as new trucks cost over $180,000 and used trucks tend to be very deteriorated. In October, the Shop Manager located a 2006 Etnyre Centennial Distributor Truck from an asphalt firm in North Carolina. However, due to quick turnaround requirements to purchase the equipment, the Public Works Director informed the Public Works Committee of the equipment purchase at the November 5th meeting, and moved forward with the purchase. The Distributor Truck was purchased for $72,500, which was determined as follows: Agreed Upon Price: $82,000 Trade-In Value: - $8,000 Negotiated Reduction: - $1,500* FINAL PRICE: $72,500 *Upon inspection of the equipment, Highway Staff felt there was greater interior wear and tear than shown, so $1,500 was reduced from the price. ANALYSIS: The Distributor Truck has been inspected and delivered to Ozaukee County, but Highway Staff felt that the Public Works Committee should still be on the record of supporting the purchase, if appropriate. Additionally, due to the final cost ($72,500) being $12,500 over the budget cost ($60,000), Highway Staff proposes to utilize a portion of the $21,000 in proceeds from the sale of Highway Department equipment at the annual auction that occurred in October.

52 8.a.4 Public Works Committee AGENDA INFORMATION SHEET AGENDA DATE: November 20, 2014 DEPARTMENT: Highway DIRECTOR: Bob Dreblow PREPARER: Jon Edgren Agenda Summary Review/Approve Excavator Purchase BACKGROUND INFORMATION: As part of the 2014 Highway Department Budget, the purchase of a used Track Excavator was approved with a budget amount of $100,000. The proposed purchase would replace a 2004 Link Belt 240LX which has significant maintenance costs and 8,500 Hours. Due to our work over the last two years for the Planning & Parks Department, the Highway Department has been renting a larger Excavator, a Kobelco SK350 Excavator, to perform Fish Passage projects. We have the opportunity to apply those rental payments towards the purchase of the Kobelco SK350 Excavator, which we believe give our operations greater flexibility for Fish Passage projects and work at the Gravel Pits. The Excavator will be purchased for approximately $95,000, which was determined as follows: Original Price: $210,000 Rental Payments: Link Belt Trade-In: Skidsteer Mills Trade-In: - $80,000 (Estimated) - $25,000 (Estimated) - $10,000 (Estimated) FINAL PRICE: $95,000 ANALYSIS: Based upon the reduced cost by applying the previously paid rental costs from the Fish Passage projects and the ability to use the larger Excavator in all operations, Highway Staff recommends purchasing the Kobelco SK350 Excavator as proposed.

54 Ozaukee County Highway Department 410 South Spring Street Port Washington, Wisconsin Jon E. Edgren, P.E. Assistant Public Works Director Phone Fax b.1.a TO: Bob Dreblow, Director of Public Works FROM: Jon E. Edgren, Assistant Director of Public Works SUBJECT: Snow & Ice Control Analysis: Town of Port Washington & Saukville DATE: November 13, 2014 Per the request of the Ozaukee County Public Works Committee, I have completed my analysis of the 2013/2014 Snow & Ice Control costs for the Towns of Port Washington and Saukville. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In tabulating actual Snow & Ice Control costs and salt usage between the Towns of Port Washington and Saukville, and the estimated Snow & Ice Control costs and salt usage if the Ozaukee County Highway Department had performed those services, the following comparison was developed: Town of Port Washington Winter Maint. Costs Increase/Decrease Year Estimate d Actual Cost Perce ntage 2013 $52, $60, $7, % 2014 $38, $46, $8, % Salt Usage Incre ase/decre ase Year Estimate d Actual Perce ntage % 28.9% Town of Saukville Winter Maint.

55 Ozaukee County Highway Department 410 South Spring Street Port Washington, Wisconsin Jon E. Edgren, P.E. Assistant Public Works Director Phone Fax b.1.a METHODOLOGY: In order to compare the actual Snow & Ice Control costs with estimated costs for the Town of Port Washington and Town of Saukville, two methods were considered: 1) Compare the Townships s 2013 & 2014 Year-to-Date costs to their previous 4-year average. 2) Compare the Town of Port Washington & Saukville s Snow & Ice Control costs to the other Townships served by Ozaukee County. Method #1 has a significant flaw, because each year is different based on the amount and timing of precipitation, and variation of temperatures. As an example, the Town of Port Washington varied between 146 Tons and 176 Tons of salt used annually, and between $28,000 and $39,000 of Winter Maintenance costs annually during the stretch from 2009 to However, Method #2 accounts for variation in year-to-year weather by comparing the Townships with other Ozaukee Townships. While each Township certainly has different expectations and variations of weather, I believe a consistent trend is shown, and therefore the analysis is sound. Comparing the winter maintenance costs and salt usage for the Towns of Port Washington & Saukville to the Towns of Belgium, Fredonia & Grafton ( Three-Town Total ) shows that regardless of annual weather variations, the Level of Service stability between the Townships is consistent. ANALYSIS: In line with my chosen Methodology, I focused my analysis on the comparison of the Towns of Belgium, Fredonia & Grafton to the individual Towns of Port Washington & Saukville. Below is the Cost Comparison for the Town of Port Washington from 2009 to 2012 and the Town of Saukville from 2009 to 2013, when each Town privatized Snow & Ice Control service respectively: Three-Town Town of Port Washington Total Percentage of Cost 3-Town Total Town of Saukville Total Cost Percentage of 3-Town Total Year Total Cost 2009 $198, $39, % $75, % 2010 $192, $38, % $68, % 2011 $225, $43, % $76, % 2012 $182, $33, % $62, % 2013 $272, N/A N/A $84, % Attachment: 2014 Township Plowing Analysis (2513 : Snow Plowing Analysis) Page 2 of 5 Packet Pg. 55

56 Ozaukee County Highway Department 410 South Spring Street Port Washington, Wisconsin Jon E. Edgren, P.E. Assistant Public Works Director Phone Fax b.1.a Therefore, during the given timeframe, the Town of Port Washington ranged between 18.1% to 20.2% of the total cost of the Towns of Belgium, Fredonia & Grafton with an average of 19.4%. In the same fashion, the Town of Saukville ranged between 31.2% to 38.1% with an average of 34.6%. Next, I performed the same analysis for Salt Usage during the same timeframes: Three-Town Total Town of Port Washington Town of Saukville Year Total Salt Used (Tons) Total Salt (Tons) Percentage of 3-Town Total Total Salt (Tons) Percentage of 3-Town Total , % % % % , % % , % % , N/A N/A % Therefore, during the given timeframe, the Town of Port Washington ranged between 14.8% to 15.9% of the total cost of the Towns of Belgium, Fredonia & Grafton with an average of 15.5%. In the same fashion, the Town of Saukville ranged between 28.2% to 38.0% with an average of 36.6%. Utilizing the calculated averages, generates the following comparisons for the Town of Port Washington & Saukville: Estimated Winter Mainte nance Costs Town of Port Washington Town of Saukville Year Three-Town Total Cost Comparative Average Estimated Total Cost Comparative Average Estimate d Total Cost 2013 $272, % $52, N/A N/A 2014 $196, % $38, % $67, Estimated Salt Usage (Tons) Three-Town Town of Port Washington Town of Saukville Year Total Salt Used (Tons) Comparative Average Est.

Assistant Public Works Director Phone Fax b.1.a Finally, taking the estimated totals leads to the following comparisons: Town of Port Washington Winter Maint. Costs Increase/Decrease Year Estimated Actual Cost Percentage 2013 $52, $60, $7, % 2014 $38, $46, $8, % Salt Usage Increase/Decrease Year Estimated Actual Percentage % % CONCLUSION: Town of Saukville Winter Maint. Costs Increase/Decrease Year Estimated Actual Cost Percentage 2013 N/A N/A N/A N/A 2014 $67, $74, $7, % Salt Usage Increase/Decrease Year Estimated Actual Percentage 2013 N/A N/A N/A % Comparing the Ozaukee County Highway Department s estimates to the Town of Port Washington actual Winter Maintenance costs and salt usage, we continue to estimate lower costs, $15,000 between 2013 and 2014, and significantly lower salt usage. As salt costs are expected to jump in the private sector this year, the estimated cost differential would only increase. Due to the ability of the Highway Department to deploy a number of different pieces of equipment, such as Single-Axle & Tri-Axle Plow Trucks, V-Plow Trucks, Loaders, Graders, Snow Blowers attachment for the Loader, etc, we are able to reduce salt usage by applying mechanical methods to remove hard-pack snow on the roadway. Typically, private snow plows are required to use higher salt totals to burn the hard-pack snow off of the roadway. Attachment: 2014 Township Plowing Analysis (2513 : Snow Plowing Analysis) Comparing the Ozaukee County Highway Department s estimates to the Town of Saukville actual Winter Maintenance costs and salt usage, we estimate about $7,000 in savings if the Ozaukee County Highway Department would ve been used. However, cost savings would ve been substantially higher if typical salt usage occurred in the Town of Saukville. Page 4 of 5 Packet Pg. 57

58 Ozaukee County Highway Department 410 South Spring Street Port Washington, Wisconsin Jon E. Edgren, P.E. Assistant Public Works Director Phone Fax b.1.a The Town of Saukville recognized a 38% reduction in salt usage compared to the estimate due to a salt shortage during During the 2014 winter months, salt became scarce in a number of parts of the country which led to private snow plowing firms being cut off from salt supplies. Without salt, private snow plowers, including those in Saukville, were forced to mix salt with sand to extend their remaining salt supplies. Sand is significantly cheaper than salt, but does very little to maintain safe roads. Sand doesn t melt snow at all, but simply adds friction. However, after a very short period, the sand is compacted into the snow, and any friction value is lost. Additionally, communities that use sand create long term maintenance issues with sand filling up roadside ditches, and requests for road sweeping from bicyclists and motorcyclists due to loose sand on roadways. Therefore, based upon the statistics and other information, I believe that the Ozaukee County Highway Department continues to display effectiveness and value to the County, State and Towns of Belgium, Fredonia and Grafton through our Snow & Ice Control Operations.
