Changes To Construction Projects Result In $82,000 Additional Cost

Changes to four construction jobs have resulted in a net $81,846 increase in their cost.

The Township Council approved the changes at its Aug. 12 meeting.

The biggest change – $118,503.56 – was for the New Brunswick Road repaving project conducted in the Spring. The increase was due to additional asphalt being needed to pave DeMott Lane between New Brunswick Road and Cherrywood Drive, said township manager Bob Vornlocker.

An increase in traffic control costs and in the amount of concrete needed for driveway transitions in the Berry Street sidewalk project resulted in an $11,825 increase in that project’s cost, Vornlocker said.

A home renovation project funded by a Community Development Block Grant saw a $1,280 increase for remediation when mold was found in the kitchen after sheetrock was removed, Vornlocker said.

The increases were mitigated slightly by a $49,761 decrease in the cost of the Overbrook Road paving project due to a reduction in the cost of asphalt and traffic control, Vornlocker said.
