RFIs, Work Change Directives and Change Orders

The discovered AT&T line has not been relocated as of yet. This could cause a delay in the contract time. We are working closely with AT&T to get the line relocated.

Per Board request, we have been working on the Harwin west side additional design. We have used current bid items where possible and have added bid items as needed. We anticipate that the increase scope of work will also add days to the contract. At the time of this report the contractor had not completed the scheduled of values. If this changes we will let the board know in advance before presenting the change order information.
