Dunbar Township Municipal Authority will find out if there is any charge from the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy for a right of way along a section of the Great Allegheny Passage.
Glenn Wolfe of Widmer Engineering updated the board Monday on the progress of the Phase 2 sewage project and a change order that will be needed to replace a 15-inch pipe with a 30-inch pipe along the bike trail between Ridge Boulevard and Adelaide.
Wolfe said the RTC originally was going to charge the authority extra for use of the right of way, but because the authority will be using the previous set right of way for which they pay monthly, there is no additional charge.
However, Wolfe said, they may need to pay the RTC for a temporary right of way for the construction equipment. Authority solicitor Don McCue said the easement might cover that cost. He will check into it.
Wolfe said the amount for that addition to the project will be $367,315. McCue said they might have to advertise because the change order was so high.
Wolfe said he'll check with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to find out if the authority can legally approve the request without advertising.
Any change order will be contingent upon approval by the USDA.
In other business, the authority announced the tap-in bills for Phase 2 will be going out in the mail soon. The charge will be $850 per ECU.
