The Segment 2 sound <br />attenuation walls are at the rear of six residences facing Port Manleigh Circle, located <br />along the easterly side of MacArthur Boulevard, midway between San Joaquin Hills <br />Road and Ford Road (see attached exhibit). The contract has now been completed to <br />the satisfaction of the Public Works Department. A summary of the contract cost is as <br />follows: <br />Original bid amount: $148,829.50 <br />Actual amount of bid items constructed: 148,829.50 <br />Total amount of change orders: 2,087.00 <br />Final contract cost: $150,916.50 <br />The increase in the amount of actual bid items constructed over the original bid amount <br />resulted from the need to remove 14" of masonry wall height at the request of the <br />affected property owner. The final overall construction cost including change orders <br />was 1.4% over the original bid amount. <br />One change order in the amount of $2,087.00 provided for the 14" reduction in masonry <br />wall height. <br />
