NAME OF PROJECT:
DRAGONFLY CHANNEL PHASE 2A & 2B
DAC BID NO. 24-0014
GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION OF PROJECT:
Phase 2A consists of channel construction, energy dissipation & access features, maintenance road construction, installation of fencing and lowering of existing agricultural waterlines. Channel construction will included 244,000 CY of earthwork to be excavated and stored within the designated deposition area1, with top soil stripped and stockpiled to cap deposition area1 at the end of earthwork activity, approximately 15,000 CY of excavation off site to waste2, and 34,600 CY of excavation to embankment to construct channel. Energy dissipation & access features will include 5,342 CY of soil cement and 1200 CY of wire enclosed rip rap to construct (4) 5’ tall soil cement drop structure consisting of 1’ stair stepped lifts, and soil cement maintenance ramps on each side of the channel for every section in between drops. Additional energy dissipation will be constructed with a rip rap erosion dissipation pad at the entrance to Isaacks Lake. Maintenance road construction will consist of 15,500 SY of 4” base course in 12’ width along both sides of the channel. Installation of fencing will include installation of 9,450 LF of new 4 strand wire fencing along both sides of the channel. 720 LF of existing 1 ¼” black poly agricultural water lines will need to be lowered underneath channel bottom and encased within a 4” HDPE Gas line sleeve and connected to existing lines on either end of the channel.
Phase 2B consists of channel construction, energy dissipation & access features, maintenance road construction, installation & removal of fencing and utility lowering. Channel construction will included 234,000 CY of earthwork to be excavated and stored within the designated deposition area1, with top soil stripped and stockpiled to cap deposition area1 at the end of earthwork activity, approximately 15,000 CY of excavation off site to waste2, and 40,000 CY of excavation to embankment to construct channel. Energy dissipation & access features will include 6,150 CY of soil cement and 440 CY of wire enclosed rip rap to construct (5) 6’ tall soil cement drop structure consisting of 1’ stair stepped lifts, and soil cement maintenance ramps on each side of the channel for every section in between drops. Maintenance road construction will consist of 15,500 SY of 4” base course in 12’ width along both sides of the channel. Installation of fencing will include removal of 2,315 LF of existing fence and installation of 11,500 LF of new 4 strand wire fencing along both sides of the channel. 520 LF of existing 12” PVC water lines will need to be lowered underneath channel bottom and replaced with 12” ductile iron water line and installed with appropriate fittings.
1 Channel ROW includes a “deposition area”. It is in the owner’s best interest to keep as much excavated soil on site as possible. The deposition area was sized to provide adequate storage for as much earthwork as possible, while minimizing the ROW acquisition footprint. The deposition areas within Phases 2A & 2B are not large enough for the volume of excess earthwork in these phases. The County has full control of the ROW for the entire channel corridor, despite only issuing Bid for Phases 2A & 2B. Contractors are expected to clear and grub deposition areas into future phases 3A-3C in order to accommodate adequate storage for excess earthwork from 2A & 2B. All areas cleared and grubbed will require stockpiling the top soil and reapplication once finished grade is met. These bid items can be found within the bid tab for each phase under “Additional Clearing and Grubbing & Phase 3” & “Top Soil Strip/Stockpile Cap – Phase 3”. Permanent fencing per plan will be expected to be installed for all additional areas cleared and grubbed within Phase 3. Contractors will be expected to fill deposition zones to finished grade per plan, starting from the west going east. Once finished grades are met, the eastern tie slope for the deposition area will be tapered to match existing grade at no steeper than 6:1 slopes. No density testing will be required in deposition areas, but approximate compaction of ~90% is desired through wetting and tracking with on-site equipment prior to redistributing topsoil cap over deposition area.
2 Dona Ana County will obtain a free use permit with BLM not to exceed the quantity of excavation to waste shown on the bid tab of 30,000 CY. The contractor may haul exported material to separate County owned property approximately 5 miles from the project site at 32° 25’ 11.325”N / 106° 38’ 29.195”W. No density testing will be required for placement of material on County property, but approximate compaction of ~90% is desired through wetting and tracking with on-site equipment. Alternatively, the contractor may elect to haul material to a location of their choosing, so long as the material is to be used for public benefit. Contractors will be responsible for providing proof of public benefit to County for approval prior to export. Quantity of export material may not exceed the 30,000 CY quantified as excavation to waste in the bid schedule.
Project is located approximately 3.7 miles north of US-70 along Holman Road. Project will extend west approximately 10,300 feet to Isaacks Lake. Project is located in Doña Ana County, New Mexico.
