$172 MILLION OF PARKWAYS AUTHORITY TURNPIKE BONDS ON SALE THIS WEEK

 

Parkways Authority members last week approved the last items of paperwork necessary for $172 million in West Virginia Turnpike bonds that went to market on Tuesday. While the authority had initially aimed for getting the bonds to market in April or May, Parkways General Manager Greg Barr said Thursday he’s hopeful some of the projects to be funded with the bond money will get underway this year. That includes road safety improvements on W.Va. 10, although Barr noted that Parkways will not oversee the awarding of contracts funded through the Turnpike bonds. The key project to be funded from the first round of Turnpike bonds is construction of 3.8 miles of four-lane roads on the King Coal Highway from Airport Road to John Nash Boulevard in Mercer County, estimated to cost $85 million. Tuesday’s bond sale is the first of two bond issues, to be repaid with Turnpike tolls, expected to total more than $300 million.

 

WVDOH ADDS NEW FEATURES TO WEBPAGE—AWARD STATUS AND JOBS ACT APPLICABILITY

 

The WVDOH Contract Administration Division has added new features to their webpage that should be of interest to industry. Viewers can now see the status of a project (whether awarded or rejected and the award date) and indicates whether a project from a particular letting was subject to the new WV Jobs Act.  The page can be found at the Contractors Resource Center webpage maintained by Contract Administration (not on BidX). Members can view the new webpage by clicking here, which currently shows the results from the July 24 and August 7 lettings. The DOH will reportedly have this information posted a day or two after their internal award meeting for each letting.

 

WVDOH TO GO LIVE with wvOASIS---ESTIMATE BLACKOUT PERIOD APPROACHING

 

The WVDOH’s much anticipated change over to wvOasis for Construction Estimate Payments will happen October 1, impacting estimate payments in September and October. The DOH will reportedly pay everything through the September 7 estimate cutoff date under the old / current system. These payments should be paid the week of September 24th. The DOH will be skipping the September 21 estimate as they transfer to the new system, thus paying for work performed during this outage period on the October 5 estimate.  This estimate will likely be paid the week of October 15th. This schedule is still subject to change and the blackout period could be extended depending on the success of the transfer.  The CAWV will keep members posted on the issue in future Highway / Heavy Bulletins.

 

THIRD SET OF 2018 CAWV/WVDOH TECHNICIAN AND INSPECTOR COURSES ADDED


The CAWV is pleased to announce that due to demand a third set of Technician Certification Training Courses has been added to the training schedule. The courses, which are offered annually to help individuals prepare for WVDOH certification examinations required under their Quality Assurance Program, have seen greater demand this year due to the passage of the “Roads to Prosperity Bond Amendment”. Thousands of individuals have attended courses in Compaction, Aggregates, Asphalt and Portland Cement Concrete over the last several years. Test comparisons prove that those persons who attend the CAWV/WVDOH courses have a higher success rate for passing the exams.

 

* New for 2018: All certification testing has been moved to an online format that will require the attendee to have a laptop, tablet or iPad type device to take the test. The use of smart phones during the test is prohibited.
