LabCAT Heads to Grand Junction In 2021, CDOT Region 1 Maintenance partnered with CAPA and metro Denver area producers to implement a pilot program for all maintenance paving to be completed by contract. The contract APR 101-2021 was successfully bid on March 24, 2021, and Brannan Sand & Gravel was the successful contractor. The contract approach taken, commonly referred to as Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) and titled Region 1 On Call Asphalt Paving Services, bundled multiple maintenance paving locations into a single contract. Material requirements were established and a master task order developed. Individual task orders were then executed in increments of the total amount. The contract is a streamlined approach and includes four pay items, namely, milling, paving, traffic control and stripping. Paving was completed on various highways including I-25 at the Colfax Ave. northbound off ramp. Grant Cruseturner, Manager, Brannan Sand & Gravel, commented, “Our CDOT R1 On-Call paving contract is a great addition for Brannan’s long partnership with CDOT. Contract for Maintenance Paving – a CDOT Region 1 Success This program gives CDOT Region 1 the flexibility to address their immediate paving maintenance needs, like the night paving of the NB I-25 offramp at Colfax and working with the R1’s maintenance folks has been a great experience. We really appreciate them trusting us to take care of their paving needs.” Brannan’s Project Manager, Kelly French with Brent Reigel, CDOT Region 1 Maintenance
