BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In April 2017 Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 132 (SB 132), which appropriated $427 million to the Riverside County Transportation Efficiency Corridor (RCTEC) for five projects. SB 132 allocated $180 million to the 15/91 ELC. The 15/91 ELC will provide a tolled express lanes connector between the existing 91 Express Lanes and the future 15 Express Lanes to the north of SR-91 (Figure 1: Vicinity Map). SB 132 also statutorily created a task force to develop recommendations to accelerate project delivery of the RCTEC projects. On June 27, 2017, Governor Brown signed budget trailer bill Assembly Bill 115 (AB 115) through which the Commission received additional project delivery authority to ensure cost-effective and timely delivery of the 15/91 ELC. Agenda Item 7 1 At its October 2017 meeting, the Commission approved an overall procurement strategy for the 15/91 ELC to secure all the services, design and construction needed to deliver the project. The approved strategy consisted of a series of contract amendments, as permitted by AB 115, to existing 91 Project and 1-15 Express Lanes Project (1-15 ELP) contracts with engineering companies, contractors, toll vendors, legal, and financial advisors. 1-151SR-91 Express tapes Gonnactor PruiEct Limits Figure 1: 15/ 1 Express Lanes Connector Project Vicinity Map The 15/91 ELC involves adding: 1) A single -lane tolled express lane connector from the eastbound RCTC 91 Express Lanes to the future northbound 15 Express lanes that would extend in the median of 1-15 to the Hidden Valley Road interchange; and 2) A single -lane tolled express lane connector from the future southbound 15 Express Lanes that would extend from the median of 1-15 at the Hidden Valley Road interchange and would connect to the westbound RCTC 91 Express Lanes. In addition, operational improvements are proposed along eastbound SR-91 by extending the eastbound RCTC 91 Express Lane to approximately 0.5 mile east of the 15/91 interchange and widening SR-91 to accommodate extending the outside eastbound general purpose lane from the SR-91 bridge over Arlington Channel to east of Promenade Avenue. A detailed map of the 15/91 ELC is provided as Attachment 1. In April 2018, staff initiated negotiations with Skanska-Ames, a Joint Venture (Skanska-Ames JV), the 1-15 ELP design -build (DB) contractor, to amend the 1-15 ELP contract to include the 15/91 ELC work. In November 2018, staff and the 1-15 ELP DB contractor were unable to Agenda Item 7 2 reach an agreement on a negotiated price for the 15/91 ELC. To advance the 15/91 ELC work while the new procurement was underway, the 1-15 ELP DB contract was amended to include specific advance engineering design and construction work to accommodate the 15/91 ELC and eliminate throw -away work. The same approach was taken with the 1-15 ELP Toll System Provider (TSP) so that the installed 1-15 ELP tolling system and software could accommodate the 15/91 ELC upon opening. The Commission has also executed several amendments with existing firms working on the 1-15 ELP to provide support services during the development of the 15/91 ELC. These services include work in the following major areas: environmental studies and approvals, preliminary engineering, legal support, contract document preparation, procurement assistance and construction management. DISCUSSION: Design -Build Procurement Selection Process The DB contractor for the 15/91 ELC was procured using a competitive procurement method to obtain the best -value for the Commission. The competitive procurement method considers and evaluates the proposal price and the proposal's technical elements. The DB contractor was selected using a two-step procurement process, as allowed by federal regulations and Public Contract Code 6820 (Design -Build Law). The first step consisted of shortlisting the proposers based on a request for qualifications (RFQ). The second step consisted of the receipt and evaluation of price and technical proposals in response to the request for proposals (RFP). As allowed by the Design -Build Law, the recommended award is based upon a determination using criteria established in the RFP. The RFP included an upset limit, which identified the Commission's maximum price expectation to the proposers. The upset limit of $142 million was initially developed by an independent engineer's estimate for the 15/91 ELC based upon the understanding of market conditions at the time of the estimate's development and further increased due to feedback from proposer one-on-one meetings. Depending on the price proposals received, the selection process utilizing the upset limit had three possible selection outcomes: 1. One proposal price under the upset limit: If only one proposer had a price less than the upset limit, were technically compliant with all other RFP requirements and were responsive and passed all pass/fail criteria, the technical evaluations are not performed and the award could be made to that proposer. Agenda Item 3 2. More than one proposal price is under the upset limit: If more than one proposer had a price less than the upset limit, were technically compliant with all other RFP requirements and were responsive and passed all pass/fail criteria, the technical evaluations are performed on the proposals under the upset limit, and selection is made on the basis of price and technical scoring as set forth in the RFP. 3. All proposal prices are over the upset limit: If no proposer had a price less than the upset limit, the Commission reserved the right to waive the upset limit requirement and award the contract to the proposer with lowest proposal price that was technically compliant with all other RFP requirements and was responsive and passed all pass/fail criteria. Request for Qualifications On February 4, 2019, staff issued a letter to the industry announcing the upcoming release of a RFQ for the 15/91 ELC. The Commission conducted numerous meetings with interested companies to garner their input about the 15/91 ELC prior to the release of the RFQ. On March 4, 2019, staff issued the DB RFQ No. 19-31-001-00 and received seven statements of qualifications (SOQs) in response to the RFQ. A selection team of staff, Caltrans and the city of Corona supported by procurement management consultants reviewed the SOQs and performed a comprehensive evaluation. On May 6, 2019 the Commission announced the shortlisting of the following four design -build teams: 1. Flatiron West, Inc. 2. Guy F. Atkinson Construction, LLC., dba Guy F. Atkinson 3. MCM Construction, Inc. 4. Myers -Rados, a Joint Venture Request for Proposals The four short-listed proposers were issued an RFP. Several one-on-one meetings were held with each proposer to get input from the proposers relative to risk allocation, and commercial terms. A total of four Addenda were issued responding to questions received and issues posed by the short-listed proposers. Two proposers submitted proposals that were reviewed and evaluated by a pass/fail and responsiveness committee for responsiveness to the RFP requirements and satisfaction of the pass/fail criteria set forth in the RFP. Upon determination by the technical evaluation committee that both proposals were responsive and passed the pass/fail criteria, staff opened and reviewed the proposers' form containing the contract upset limit indication. Staff confirmed that both proposers were above the established upset limit of $142 million. Pursuant to the RFP, in the event that all proposers' price proposals were above the upset limit, a scored technical evaluation would not proceed and the Commission reserved the right to Agenda Item 4 award the contract to the team that had the lowest proposal price that was technically compliant with all other RFP requirements, was responsive, and passed all pass/fail criteria. Both proposals were determined by the evaluation committees to be technically compliant with all RFP requirements and responsive and passing all pass/fail criteria. Proposal Price The two price proposals are as follows: Proposer Price Proposal Myers -Rados, a Joint Venture $164,840,000 Flatiron West, Inc. $187,298,643 Staff recommends award to the proposer that was technically compliant with all RFP requirements and was responsive and passed all pass/fail criteria — Myers -Rados, a Joint Venture. Project and Construction Management Services In April 2015, the Commission awarded an agreement with Parsons to provide project and construction management services for the 1-15 ELP. Project and construction management services for this design -build project includes procurement services, project financing support, toll system and operations planning, engineering, design review/oversight, construction management/oversight, agency agreement support, and other necessary services. On July 10, 2018 the Commission approved an amendment to the Parsons agreement to add additional project and construction management services for the 15/91 ELC. The scope of work included support to staff in its efforts to negotiate with the 1-15 ELP DB contractor to amend the 1-15 ELP contract to include the 15/91 ELC work, as well as continuing the 1-15 ELP construction management/oversight for the 15/91 ELC. As noted above, an agreement with the 1-15 ELP DB contractor on a negotiated price for the 15/91 ELC was not reached, and a new procurement was initiated to hire a 15/91 ELC DB contractor. Staff recommends an amendment to the Parsons contract, in an amount of $14,825,000 to secure additional project and construction management resources and services for the anticipated duration of the 15/91 ELC. Agenda Item 5 Total Project Cost The following is a breakdown of the major cost categories for the 15/91 ELC: Project Cost Table Cost Category Cost Project and Construction Management Preliminary Engineering/Environmental $ 2,070,000 Project and Construction Management and Legal Services for Design- Build Procurement 9,329,000 Project and Construction Management and Legal Services for Design- Build Phase 24,293,000 Toll Services Provider 12,308,000 Skanska-Ames JV Design -Build Amendments 25,962,000 Myers -Rados JV Design -Build Contract 164,840,000 Caltrans Oversight 7,166,000 Agency 7,831,000 Contingency 16,530,000 Total: $ 270,329,000 The current estimated capital cost of the 15/91 ELC is $270.329 million. At its January 2019 workshop, the Commission committed to fund the remaining balance with surplus toll revenue from the RCTC 91 Express Lanes. Based on current estimates (see Project Cost Table above), this requires a total allocation from surplus toll revenue of $90.329 million. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of Agreement No. 19-31-074-00 with Myers -Rados JV as the DB contractor to design and construct the 15/91 ELC in the amount of $164,840,000, plus a contingency amount of $10,487,000, for a total amount of $175,327,000.

(e) After RCTC receives DB Contractor's explanation as to why the modifications are not required as provided in Sections 4.1.6(a) through 4.6.1(d), if RCTC and/or Department is not satisfied with DB Contractor's explanation the Parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute.

Upon such change, and except as provided in Section 11.1.10, any additional Cost from such change shall be paid by RCTC and any reduction in Cost shall reduce the Contract Price pursuant to a Change Order. 11.1.10. Commercial Unavailability of Required Coverages (a) If, through no fault of DB Contractor, any of the coverages required in this Section 11 or Exhibit 12 (or any of the required terms of such coverages, including policy limits) become unavailable or are available only with commercially unreasonable premiums, RCTC will consider in good faith alternative insurance packages and programs that DB Contractor proposes, with the goal of reaching agreement on a package that provides coverage equivalent to that specified in this Contract.

(b) Any other inaccuracies in the Utility Information have no impact on "reasonable accuracy" and shall not result in a determination that the Utility was not identified with "reasonable accuracy." If there is any discrepancy between any of the components of the Utility Information (e.g., Preliminary Utility Matrix and Utility Maps contain conflicting information), only the most accurate information shall be relevant for purposes of this Section 16.12. 16.13. Differing Site Conditions 16.13.1. DB Contractor shall bear the burden of proving that a Differing Site Condition exists and that DB Contractor could not have reasonably worked around the Differing Site Condition so as to avoid additional cost. 16.13.2. Each DB Contractor Change Request relating to a Differing Site Condition shall be accompanied by a statement signed by a qualified professional including all relevant assumptions made by DB Contractor with respect to the condition at the relevant portion of the Site, justifying the basis for such assumptions, explaining exactly how the existing conditions differ from those assumptions, and stating the efforts DB Contractor took to find alternative design or construction solutions to eliminate or minimize the problem and the associated costs. If the request is based on clause (a) of the definition of Differing Site Condition, the statement shall also include detailed information regarding the alleged Error in the Boring Data provided by RCTC forming the basis for the request, and shall explain how DB Contractor's assumptions would have changed had the Boring Data been accurate. 16.13.3.

Supplier's Invoices Materials charges shall be substantiated by valid copies of Supplier's invoices. Such invoices shall be submitted with the daily time and material Work reports, or if not available, they shall be submitted with subsequent daily time and material Work reports. Should said Supplier's invoices not be submitted within 60 days after the date of delivery of the materials, RCTC may establish the cost of such materials at the lowest current wholesale prices at which such materials are available, in the quantities concerned, delivered to the location of Work, less any discounts available. 16.21. Execution of Reports RCTC will compare its records with the completed daily time and material Work reports provided by DB Contractor and make any necessary adjustments. When these daily time and material Work reports are agreed upon and signed by both Parties, said reports shall become the basis of payment for the Work performed, but shall not preclude subsequent adjustment based on a later audit. DB Contractor's cost records pertaining to Change Order Work paid for on a time and material basis shall be open, during all regular business hours, to inspection or audit by representatives of RCTC during the term of the Contract and for a period of not less than five years after the Final Acceptance Date, and DB Contractor shall retain such records for that period.

Disputes The failure of RCTC and DB Contractor to agree to any Change Order under this Section 16 (including agreement as to the amount of compensation allowed under a Time and Materials Change Order and the disputed amount of the increase in the Contract Price and/or extension of a Completion Deadline in connection with a Change Order as described above) shall be a Dispute to be resolved pursuant to Section 24. Except as otherwise specified in the Change Order, execution of a Change Order by both Parties shall be deemed accord and satisfaction of all claims by DB Contractor of any nature arising from or relating to the Work covered by the Change Order and DB Contractor shall be deemed to have expressly released, waived, and disclaimed any right to receive compensation, time extension or make any Claim related thereto. DB Contractor's Claim and any award by the dispute resolver shall be limited to the incremental costs incurred by DB Contractor with respect to the disputed matter (crediting RCTC for any corresponding reduction in DB Contractor's other costs) and shall in no event exceed the amounts allowed by Section 16.10 with respect thereto. 16.23. Work Performed Without Direction or Authority If DB Contractor undertakes any work or efforts: (a) outside of the scope of the Work; (b) upon any request, order, or other authorization issued by a Person in excess of that Person's authority as provided in this Contract, (c) included in any oral request or directive or (d) unrelated to the Project, DB Contractor shall be deemed to have undertaken such efforts voluntarily, at its sole cost and risk, and shall not be entitled to a Change unless DB Contractor has received a Directive Letter or Change Order signed by RCTC. In addition, RCTC may require DB Contractor to remove or otherwise undo the results of any such work efforts without any entitlement to a Claim. 16.24. Changes Not Requiring Change Order Subject to Section 16.11, Deviations from standards specified in this Contract which have a neutral net cost effect and do not affect a Critical Path or Completion Deadline shall not require a Change Order provided such Deviations are approved by RCTC and Department pursuant to TP Section 1.4.

Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 121 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive SECTION 17 VALUE ENGINEERING 17.1. General 17.1.1. This Section 17 sets forth the requirements applicable to preparation, review and approval of value engineering recommendations ("Value Engineering Change Proposals" or "VECPs") for the purpose of enabling DB Contractor and RCTC to take advantage of potential cost savings or provide potential improvements to the Work through changes in the requirements relating to the Work. 17.1.2. DB Contractor is encouraged to submit VECPs whenever it identifies potential savings or improvements for the Project. RCTC may also request DB Contractor to develop and submit a specific VECP ("RCTC-Initiated VECP"). DB Contractor may refuse to consider such RCTC-Initiated VECP; provided, however, that nothing in this Contract is intended to alter RCTC's right to issue RCTC-Directed Changes in accordance with Section 16. 17.2. Value Engineering Recommendation A VECP is a proposal developed and documented by DB Contractor which: 17.2.1. Would modify or require a change in any of the commitments, requirements of or constraints in this Contract in order to be implemented; and 17.2.2. Reduces the Contract Price without impairing essential functions or characteristics of the Project (including the meeting of requirements contained in all Governmental Approvals) including service life, economy of operation, ease of maintenance, desirability and safety, and provided that it is not based solely upon a change in quantities, performance or reliability or a relaxation of the requirements contained in this Contract. 17.3. Information to be Provided 17.3.1. At a minimum, the following information shall be submitted by DB Contractor with each VECP: (a) A statement that the submission is a VECP, and a narrative description of the proposed change; (b) Description of the existing requirements of this Contract which are involved in the proposed change; (c) Discussion of differences between existing requirements in this Contract and the proposed change, together with advantages and disadvantages of each changed item; (d) Itemization of the requirements of this Contract which must be changed if the VECP is approved (e.g., document sections, drawing numbers and specifications); (e) A complete cost analysis including: (i) DB Contractor's cost estimate for performing the subject Work in accordance with this Contract compared to DB Contractor's cost estimate for performing the subject Work in accordance with the proposed changes, (ii) an estimate of additional costs that will be incurred by RCTC, including estimated impact on future maintenance costs; and (iii) costs of development and implementation of the VECP by DB Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 122 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive Contractor. The cost of any additional Governmental Approvals, rights of way or easements and other costs or impacts to the Project, shall be included in the cost analysis; (f) Justification for changes in function or characteristics of each item, and effect of the change on the performance of the end item, as well as on the meeting of requirements contained in this Contract, including environmental compliance and requirements contained in Governmental Approvals; (g) If available, a description of any previous use or tests of the VECP and the conditions and results; and (h) Date or time by which a Change Order adopting the VECP must be issued in order to obtain the maximum cost reduction, noting any effect on the Project Schedule. 17.3.2. Any additional information requested by RCTC shall be provided in a timely manner. Additional information could include results of field investigations and surveys, design computations and field change sheets. 17.4. Review by RCTC 17.4.1. DB Contractor shall submit VECPs directly to PCM for transmittal to RCTC. Each VECP shall be prepared in a form acceptable to RCTC, and shall meet all applicable requirements of this Section 17. RCTC will determine whether a VECP qualifies for consideration and evaluation. VECPs that require excessive time or costs for review, evaluation or investigations, or that are not consistent with RCTC's design policies and basic design criteria may be rejected without evaluation. 17.4.2. DB Contractor has no Claim for any additional costs or delays resulting from the rejection of a VECP initiated by DB Contractor, including VECP development costs, loss of anticipated profits or increased material or labor costs. RCTC will consider only proven features that have been employed under similar conditions or projects acceptable to RCTC. RCTC is not liable for any delay in acting upon any proposal submitted pursuant to this Section 17. DB Contractor may withdraw all or part of any VECP at any time prior to approval by RCTC. Subject to Section 17.6, in all other situations each Party shall bear its own costs in connection with preparation and review of VECPs. Notwithstanding anything in this Contract to the contrary, RCTC will not consider any VECP with estimated net savings less than $50,000. 17.5. Approval of VECPs 17.5.1. RCTC may approve or reject, in whole or in part, by Change Order, any VECP submitted. Designs for approved VECPs shall be prepared by DB Contractor for incorporation into the Design Documents. Until a Change Order is issued based on a VECP, DB Contractor shall remain obligated to perform in accordance with the Project Design Documents and this Contract. 17.5.2. The following provisions shall apply to any Dispute between RCTC and DB Contractor regarding DB Contractor's performance of Work that RCTC believes should have properly been submitted as a VECP: (a) DB Contractor agrees that, within 30 days following a request from RCTC for a VECP with regard to any such Work, DB Contractor shall deliver a VECP to RCTC meeting the requirements of this Section 17, but may specify that the VECP is delivered under Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 123 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive protest. In such case, either Party may submit the question of DB Contractor's entitlement to proceed without an approved VECP to dispute resolution; (b) If a determination is ultimately made that DB Contractor is not entitled to proceed without an approved VECP, RCTC may receive a credit against the Contract Price as provided in Section 17.6; and (c) If a determination is ultimately made that DB Contractor is entitled to proceed without an approved VECP, the VECP shall be deemed withdrawn and have no effect. If DB Contractor fails to deliver a complete VECP within the foregoing deadline, RCTC may submit the issue to dispute resolution at any time. In such event, if the dispute resolution proceeding ultimately results in a determination that DB Contractor was not entitled to perform such Work without a prior approved VECP, RCTC may receive a credit against the Contract Price equal to 100% of DB Contractor's cost savings, plus profit, rather than 50% of estimated net savings as provided in Section 17.6. 17.5.3. Unless DB Contractor has received written approval from RCTC to proceed with VECP work pending approval of a VECP, DB Contractor shall not proceed with such work until the VECP is approved. Furthermore, if DB Contractor proceeds with any work that might have been the basis for a VECP price increase based on savings in RCTC's right of way costs, without first submitting a VECP, DB Contractor shall be deemed to have performed such work voluntarily, at its sole cost and risk and shall not have the right to later submit a VECP under this Contract. 17.6. Contract Price Adjustment If RCTC accepts a VECP submitted by DB Contractor pursuant to this Section 17, the Contract Price shall be adjusted in accordance with the following. 17.6.1. The term "estimated net savings" as used in this Contract shall mean (a) the difference between the cost of performing the Work according to this Contract and the actual cost to perform it according to the proposed change, less (b) the reasonable costs of studying and preparing the VECP as proven by DB Contractor and approved by RCTC in accordance with the Change Order procedures in this Contract, less (c) any additional costs incurred or to be incurred by RCTC resulting from the VECP, including the cost of RCTC's review of the VECP and implementation and maintenance costs associated therewith. DB Contractor's profit is not considered part of the cost. 17.6.2. Except as specified in Section 17.6.4, DB Contractor is not entitled to share in either collateral or future contract savings. The term "collateral savings" means additional revenues that may arise as a result of the VECP and those measurable net reductions in RCTC's costs resulting from the VECP, including operations and maintenance costs and cost of RCTC- provided property. The term "future Contract savings" shall mean reductions in the cost of performance of future construction contracts for essentially the same item resulting from a VECP submitted by DB Contractor. 17.6.3. Subject to Sections 17.6.4 and 17.6.5, the Contract Price shall be reduced by an amount equal to the sum of (a) 100% of any additional costs incurred by RCTC resulting from the VECP plus (b) 50% of estimated net savings; provided, however, that DB Contractor's profit shall not be reduced by application of the VECP. 17.6.4. In a case where DB Contractor proposes that an adjustment be made to the planned acquisition of real property in order to result in an overall cost savings to the Project (such Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 124 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive as a proposal that additional real property be purchased outside of the Planned ROW Limits in order to save on construction costs, or a proposal which would enable a reduction in the real property required to be obtained by RCTC under this Contract by incurring additional construction costs), the VECP shall compare (a) the incremental reduction in costs (such as for not designing and building a wall), and (b) the costs involved in adjusting the real property limits or Environmental Approvals (which shall be based on DB Contractor's additional costs, such as for providing real property acquisition support services (including profit) plus RCTC's additional costs, including costs of personnel as well as out-of-pocket costs such as the price of the additional real property), or (as appropriate) shall compare (y) the incremental reduction in costs (if any) for not acquiring the unnecessary real property, and (z) the additional construction costs to be incurred. The estimated net savings shall be shared 50-50 between RCTC and DB Contractor. Reimbursements for Relocation expenses owed to Utility Owners shall be addressed in calculating estimated net savings to be shared between RCTC and DB Contractor. DB Contractor shall include in its VECP an analysis of any impacts on Utility Owners for consideration by RCTC. If DB Contractor wishes to propose such a VECP, DB Contractor shall provide a separate notification to RCTC describing the proposed impact concurrently with delivery of the VECP to RCTC. 17.6.5. DB Contractor's share of any VECP cost savings shall be payable at such time as payments would have been made for the Work which is the subject of the VECP had the VECP not been implemented. 17.6.6.

In addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or in equity, and such rights and remedies as are otherwise available under this Contract, the Performance Bond, the Warranty Bond and/or the Guaranty, if an Event of Default Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 137 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive occurs, then RCTC may without further notice and without waiving or releasing DB Contractor from any obligations, and DB Contractor shall have the following obligations (as applicable): (a) RCTC may terminate this Contract in whole or part, including DB Contractor's rights of entry upon the Site and possession, control and operation of the Project, in which case, the provisions of Sections 19.3 and 19.4 shall apply; (b) If and as directed by RCTC, DB Contractor shall discontinue the Work, withdraw from the Site, and shall remove materials, equipment, tools, and instruments used by, and any debris or waste materials generated by, any DB-Related Entity in the performance of the Work; (c) DB Contractor shall deliver to RCTC possession of any or all Design Documents, Construction Documents, and all other completed or partially completed drawings (including plans, elevations, sections, details and diagrams), specifications, records, information, schedules, samples, shop drawings, electronic files and other documents and facilities related to the Project that RCTC deems necessary to complete the Work; (d) DB Contractor shall confirm the assignment to RCTC of the Subcontracts requested by RCTC, and DB Contractor shall terminate all other Subcontracts; (e) RCTC may deduct from any amounts payable by RCTC to DB Contractor such amounts payable by DB Contractor to RCTC, including: (i) the aggregate of reimbursements owing; (ii) Liquidated Damages; (iii) Lane Closure Charges; (iv) Flagging Charges; (v) 125% of the amounts RCTC deems advisable to cover any existing or threatened claims, Liens, and stop payment notices of Subcontractors, laborers, or other Persons; (vi) amounts of any Losses or Third Party Claims that have accrued; (vii) the cost to complete or remediate uncompleted Work or Nonconformances, plus an administrative charge equal to 10% of such costs; and (viii) other damages or amounts that RCTC has determined are or may be payable to RCTC under this Contract; (f) RCTC may pay such amounts and/or perform such act as may then be required from DB Contractor under this Contract or Subcontracts; (g) RCTC may appropriate any or all materials and equipment on the Site as may be suitable and acceptable and may direct the Surety to complete the Project or may enter into an agreement to complete the Project according to the terms and provisions hereof with another contractor or the Surety, or use such other methods as may be required to complete the Project, including completion of the Project by RCTC; and/or (h) If RCTC exercises any right to perform any obligations of DB Contractor, in the exercise of such right RCTC may: (i) perform or attempt to perform, or cause to be performed, such work; (ii) spend such sums as RCTC deems necessary and reasonable to employ and pay such architects, engineers, consultants and contractors, and obtain materials and equipment as may be required to complete such work; (iii) execute all applications, certificates and other documents as may be required to complete the work; (iv) modify or terminate any contractual arrangements; (v) take any other actions that RCTC may consider necessary to complete the Work; and (vi) prosecute and defend any action or proceeding incident to the Work. 20.2.2. If an Event of Default occurs, DB Contractor, any Guarantor and Surety shall be jointly and severally liable to RCTC for all Losses incurred by RCTC or any party acting on RCTC's behalf to complete the Work, or to have the Work completed by another Person (including any re -procurement costs, throw -away costs for unused portions of the completed Work, and Riverside County Transportation Commission Design -Build Contract Express Lanes Connector Project 138 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive increased financing costs). Upon occurrence of an Event of Default and for so long as the Event of Default continues, RCTC may withhold all or any portion of further payments to DB Contractor until the Final Acceptance Date or the date on which RCTC otherwise accepts the Project as complete or determines that it will not proceed with completion, at which time RCTC will determine whether DB Contractor is entitled to further payments. Promptly following the Final Acceptance Date or the date on which RCTC otherwise accepts the Project as complete or determines that it will not proceed with completion, the total cost of all completed Work shall be determined, and RCTC shall provide Notice to DB Contractor, Surety and each Guarantor of the amount, if any, that DB Contractor, each Guarantor, and the Surety shall pay RCTC or RCTC shall pay DB Contractor or its Surety with respect thereto. RCTC will deduct, from any moneys due or which will become due DB Contractor or its Surety, all costs and charges incurred by RCTC, including attorneys', accountants' and expert witness fees and costs; together with: (a) the cost of completing the Work (which shall include all Plant Establishment Work) under this Contract together with an administrative charge of 10% of such costs; (b) any reimbursements owing to RCTC; (c) any Liquidated Damages, Lane Closure Charges and Flagging Charges; (d) 125% of the amounts RCTC deems advisable to cover any existing or threatened claims, Liens and stop payment notices of Subcontractors, laborers or other Persons; (e) the amounts of any Losses or Third Party Claims that have accrued; and (f) other damages or amounts that RCTC has determined are or may be payable to RCTC under this Contract. If such expense exceeds the sum which would have been payable under the Contract, then DB Contractor, each Guarantor and its Surety(ies) shall be liable and shall pay to RCTC the amount of such excess. If any Guarantor or the Surety fails to pay such amount immediately upon RCTC's demand, then RCTC may collect interest from the Surety and/or such Guarantors on the amounts DB Contractor is required to pay in excess of the remaining balance of the Contract Price. The interest rate which the Surety and/or such Guarantors shall pay shall be the lesser of (i) 10% per annum or (ii) the maximum rate allowable under applicable Governmental Rules. The interest rate shall accrue on all amounts RCTC has had to pay in excess of the remaining balance of the Contract Price from the date of RCTC payment. 20.2.3. DB Contractor acknowledges that if a DB Contractor Default under Section 20.1.1(m) through 20.1.1(p) occurs, such event could impair or frustrate DB Contractor's performance of the Work. Accordingly, DB Contractor agrees that upon the occurrence of any such DB Contractor Default, RCTC may request of DB Contractor, or its successor in interest, adequate assurance of future performance in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. Failure to comply with such request within ten days of delivery of the request shall entitle RCTC to terminate the Contract and to the accompanying rights set forth above. Pending receipt of adequate assurance of performance and actual performance in accordance therewith, RCTC may proceed with the Work with its own forces or with other contractors on a time and material or other appropriate basis, the cost of which (plus an administrative charge of 10% of such cost) will be credited against and deducted from RCTC's payment obligations under this Contract. The foregoing shall be in addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or equity and such rights and remedies as are otherwise available under this Contract, the Performance Bond and the Guaranty. 20.2.4. In lieu of the provisions of this Section 20.2 for terminating the Contract and completing the Work, RCTC may pay DB Contractor for the Work already done according to the provisions of this Contract (including RCTC's right to deduct certain amounts therefrom) and may treat the Work remaining undone as if they had never been included or contemplated by this Contract. No claim under this provision will be allowed for prospective profits on, or any other compensation relating to, Work uncompleted by DB Contractor.

In the event that the Contract is terminated for grounds which are later determined not to justify a termination for default, such termination shall be deemed to constitute a termination for convenience pursuant to Section 19. 20.2.6. The exercise or beginning of the exercise by RCTC of any one or more rights or remedies under this Section 20.2 shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise by RCTC of any or all other such rights or remedies, each of which shall be cumulative. 20.2,7.

In the event RCTC suffers Losses as a result of any act or omission of any DB- Related Entity or any DB Contractor Fault, then, subject to the limitation on liability contained in Section 22, RCTC may recover such Losses from DB Contractor regardless of whether the breach or failure that gives rise to the damages ripens into an Event of Default. 20.2.9. RCTC's remedies associated with any false statement contained in the Proposer Questionnaire included in the Proposal or the questionnaire included in the Statement of Qualifications shall include the right to rescind the Contract. 20.3. Right to Stop Work for Failure by RCTC to Make Undisputed Payment DB Contractor may stop Work if RCTC fails to make an undisputed payment due under this Contract within 30 days after receipt of Notice of nonpayment. Any such Work stoppage shall be considered a suspension for convenience under Section 17. DB Contractor shall not have the right to terminate the Contract for default as the result of any failure by RCTC to make an undisputed payment due under this Contract. However, if such nonpayment continues for more than 180 days, upon Notice from DB Contractor to RCTC, DB Contractor may declare a Termination for Convenience under Section 19 by delivering to RCTC a Notice of termination specifying its effective date. Upon such termination, the Parties' rights and obligations shall be as provided in Section 19. 20.4. Event of Default Due Solely to DB Contractor's Failure to Achieve Completion Deadlines 20.4,1, If an Event of Default consists solely of DB Contractor's failure to achieve Substantial Completion, Project Completion, or Final Acceptance by the applicable Completion Deadline, RCTC's sole monetary remedy for such Event of Default shall be the right to assess Liquidated Damages under Section 21.1; provided, however, that: (a) such Event of Default does not delay Substantial Completion, Project Completion, or Final Acceptance beyond 180-days of the applicable Completion Deadline; and (b) DB Contractor continues to diligently perform the Work despite such Event of Default. Nothing in this Section 20.4 shall prejudice any other rights or remedies that RCTC may have due to any other Event of Default during such 180-day period. 20.4.2. If any Completion Milestone has not occurred within 180-days of the applicable Completion Deadline, RCTC may: (a) terminate this Contract; (b) continue to assess Liquidated Damages subject only to the limitations in Section 21.1; and/or (c) exercise any other right or remedy under this Contract, at law or in equity.

Subject to DB Contractor's obligations with respect to performance of Corrective Measures under TP Section 11.4, if, at either Package 2 Turnover, Package 3 Turnover or Substantial Completion, any 0.10-mile segment of new pavement within the Project (as applicable) has an MRI measured value of less than 85.0, RCTC will calculate the sum total of each 0.10-mile segment's Pavement Adjustment (i.e., pavement deductions or credits against pavement deductions) in accordance with the following table (each, a "Pavement Adjustment"): MRI Measured Value < 45.0 Pavement Adjustment Per 0.10-Mile Segment of the Project (as applicable) DB Contractor credit of $1500 against any pavement deduction 45.1 — 55.0 DB Contractor credit $1000 against any pavement deduction 55.1 — 65.0 No adjustment 65.1 — 75.0 DB Contractor to pay RCTC $3500 as a pavement deduction 75.1 — 85.0 DB Contractor to pay RCTC $5000 as a pavement deduction Riverside County Transportation Commission Express Lanes Connector Project Design -Build Contract 143 Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800642.v38 Sensitive MRI Measured Value > 85.0 Pavement Adjustment Per 0.10-Mile Segment of the Project (as applicable) DB Contractor shall perform Corrective Measures in accordance with TP Section 11.4. 21.6.3. Subject to Section 21.6.4, where a Pavement Adjustment results in a net negative Pavement Adjustment, DB Contractor shall pay RCTC such amount as Liquidated Damages in accordance with Section 21.7. 21.6.4. Where a Pavement Adjustment results in a net positive Pavement Adjustment, such net positive Pavement Adjustment will constitute a Compensable Event, entitling DB Contractor to additional compensation in an amount no greater than 100% of the positive Pavement Adjustment. 21.6.5. For illustrative purposes only, as examples: If Package 2 there are eight 0.10-mile segments with MRI measurements < 45.0, three 0.10-mile segments with MRI measurements between 65.1 and 75.0, and two 0.1-mile segments with MRI measurements between 75.1-85.0, the net negative Pavement Adjustment would be -$8,500, and DB Contractor shall pay RCTC $8,500 calculated as follows: 8 x ($1,500) — 3 x ($3,500)) — 2 x ($5,000) = -$8,500. If, in the above example, for Package 2, there was a net positive Pavement Adjustment of $3,000, then DB Contractor would not owe any Pavement Adjustment to RCTC for Package 2. However, the $3,000 for Package 2 would offset a net negative Pavement Adjustment owing for Substantial Completion up to $3,000. Accordingly, if, consistent with the above example for Package 2, there is a net negative Pavement Adjustment of -$8,500, DB Contractor shall pay RCTC $5,000 calculated as follows at Substantial Completion: -$8,500 + $3,000 =-$5,000 21.7.

A refusal of, or failure to accept, a tender of defense, as well as any Dispute over whether an Indemnified Party that has assumed control of defense is entitled to do so under Section 23.2.6 shall be resolved in accordance with Section 24, but the foregoing shall not preclude an Indemnified Party from preserving its rights or defending the claim pending such resolution. 23.2.10. The Parties acknowledge that while this Section 23 contemplates that DB Contractor will have responsibility for certain Indemnified Claims, circumstances may arise where the Parties may share liability with respect to such Indemnified Claims and liabilities. In such cases, where either Party believes that an Indemnified Claim or liability may entail shared responsibility, and that principles of comparative negligence and indemnity are applicable, the Party shall confer with the other Party on management of the Indemnified Claim or liability in question. If the Parties cannot agree on an approach to representation in the matter in question, each Party shall arrange to represent itself and to bear its own costs in connection therewith pending the outcome of the matter.

Certain State and federal statutes provide that individuals and firms may be held liable for damages and claims related to Hazardous Materials under such doctrines as joint and several liability and/or strict liability. It is not the intention of the Parties that DB Contractor be exposed to any such liability to the extent arising out of (a) proper Hazardous Materials Management activities in connection with pre-existing Site contamination, whether known or unknown, and/or (b) the activities of any Persons other than DB-Related Entities. 23.4. No Effect on Other Rights The obligations in Sections 23.1 through 23.3 shall not be construed to negate, abridge or reduce other rights or obligations which would otherwise exist in favor of an Indemnified Party under this Contract. 23.5.

Partnering (a) RCTC encourages partnering among DB Contractor, its Subcontractors, TSP, RCTC, PCM, Department, FHWA and other stakeholders. Partnering is intended to identify potential problem areas early in the progress of the Project. The parties shall commence partnering sessions to address and establish a process for resolving them in order to prevent them from becoming Claims or Disputes. Early in the progress of the Project, specific interface issues, definition of the scope of Work, division of responsibilities, communication channels, and application of alternative resolution principles shall guide partnering sessions so as to prevent problems from becoming Claims or Disputes. The issues addressed in subsequent partnering sessions will be determined by the parties to the partnering sessions as needed. (b) The facilitator for the partnering sessions will be the individual in Exhibit 2 (Contract Particulars), or another facilitator acceptable to DB Contractor, TSP and RCTC. The cost of the partnering facilitator shall be shared equally among DB Contractor, TSP and RCTC. Partnering meetings shall be conducted at the offices of RCTC, PCM or at such location as otherwise agreed upon by the parties to the partnering sessions.

Upon receipt of such notification, RCTC shall schedule a meet and confer conference within ten Business Days. (d) Within ten Business Days following the conclusion of the meet and confer conference, if the Claim, or any portion of the Claim remains unresolved, RCTC shall provide DB Contractor with a written statement identifying the portion of the Claim that remains unresolved and the portion that is resolved. (e) Failure of either party to request mediation under this Section 24.1.2(e) within 10 Business Days shall be deemed acceptance by DB Contractor that the unresolved portion of the Claim is resolved in RCTC's favor. Any unresolved portion of the Claim, as identified by DB Contractor in writing to RCTC, may, on the request of either party, be submitted to nonbinding mediation before the facilitator chosen by the Parties for the partnering sessions, with both Parties sharing the associated costs equally, unless both Parties agree to proceed with formal dispute resolution proceedings under this Contract without mediation. If mediation is elected, the parties shall mutually agree to a mediator within ten Business Days after RCTC has received the Notice identifying the unresolved portion of the Claim. If the Parties cannot agree upon a mediator, then each Party shall select a mediator and those mediators shall select a qualified neutral third party to mediate with regard to the unresolved portion of the Claim. Each Party shall bear the fees and costs charged by its respective mediator in connection with the selection of the neutral mediator. If mediation is unsuccessful, the parts of the Claim remaining unresolved shall be subject to further dispute resolution as specified below. (f) Unresolved Claims that become Disputes between the Parties that are not governed by Public Contract Code section 9204 shall be presented to RCTC's Executive Director (or other officer of RCTC with authority to make final decisions subject only to board approval and any required third party approvals) for resolution under Section 24.2.4 below.

Construction activities must not inconvenience the public or abutting property owners. Coordinate construction activities affecting property owners with 14 days prior to any impact to the property owners, and provide property owner the time and duration of impact, potential alternative access routes, and other information appropriate for the impact. Schedule and conduct work to avoid unnecessary inconvenience to the public and abutting property owners. Avoid undue delay in construction activities to reduce the public's exposure to construction. Where possible, route traffic on new or existing paved surfaces. Maintain convenient access to driveways, houses, and buildings. When an abutting property owner's access across the right-of-way line is to be eliminated or replaced under this Contract, the existing access must not be closed until the replacement access facility is usable. Construct temporary approaches to a crossing and an intersecting highway. Riverside County Transportation Commission Express Lanes Connector Project Exhibit 3 Page 37 of 53 Design -Build Contract Modified Standard Specifications Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800652.v31 Provide a reasonably smooth and even surface for use by traffic at all time during the excavation of a roadway and construction of an embankment. Before other grading activities, place fill at culverts and bridges to allow traffic to cross. If ordered by RCTC, excavate a roadway cut in layers and construct an embankment in partial widths at a time alternating construction from one side to the other and routing traffic over the side opposite the one under construction. Install or construct culverts on only 1/2 the width of the traveled way at a time; keep the traveled way portion being used by traffic open and unobstructed until the opposite side of the traveled way is ready for use by traffic. Upon completion of rough grading or placing any subsequent layer, bring the surface of the roadbed to a smooth and even condition, free of humps and depressions, and satisfactory for the use of the public. After subgrade preparation for a specified layer of material has been completed, repair any damage to the roadbed or completed subgrade, including damage caused by public use. While subgrade and paving activities are underway, allow the public to use the shoulders. If half - width paving methods are used, allow the public to use the side of the roadbed opposite the one under construction. If enough width is available, keep open a passageway wide enough to accommodate at least 2 lanes of traffic at locations where subgrade and paving activities are underway. Shape shoulders or reshape subgrade as necessary to accommodate traffic during subgrade preparation and paving activities. Apply a dust palliative for the prevention or alleviation of dust nuisance. If a height differential of more than 0.04 foot is created by construction activities at a joint transverse to the direction of traffic on the traveled way or a shoulder subject to public traffic, construct a temporary taper at the joint with a slope complying with the requirements shown in the following table: Temporary Tapers Height differential (foot) Slope (horizontal:vertical) Taper use of 14 days or less Taper use of more than 14 days Greater than 0.08 100:1 or flatter 200:1 or flatter 0.04-0.08 70:1 or flatter 70:1 or flatter For a taper on existing asphalt concrete or concrete pavement, construct the taper with minor HMA under section 39-2.07. Grind existing surfaces to accommodate a minimum taper thickness of 0.10 foot under either of the following conditions: 1. HMA material such as rubberized HMA, polymer -modified bonded wearing course, or open -graded friction course is unsuitable for raking to a maximum 0.02 foot thickness at the edge 2. Taper will be in place for more than 14 days For a taper on a bridge deck or approach slab, construct the taper with polyester concrete under section 60-3.04B. Riverside County Transportation Commission Express Lanes Connector Project Exhibit 3 Page 38 of 53 Design -Build Contract Modified Standard Specifications Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800652.v31 The completed surface of the taper must be uniform and must not vary more than 0.02 foot from the lower edge of a 12-foot straightedge when placed on its surface parallel and perpendicular to traffic. If authorized, you may use alternative materials or methods to construct the required taper. Install signs, lights, flares, Type K temporary railing, barricades and other facilities to direct traffic. Provide flaggers whenever necessary to direct the movement of the public through or around the work. 7-1.04 PUBLIC SAFETY You are responsible to provide for public safety. Do not construct a temporary facility that interferes with the safe passage of traffic. Control dust resulting from the work, inside and outside the right-of-way. Move workers, equipment, and materials without endangering traffic. Whenever your activities create a condition hazardous to the public, furnish, erect and maintain those fences, temporary railing, barricades, lights, signs, and other devices and take any other necessary protective measures to prevent damage or injury to the public. Any fences, temporary railing, barricades, lights, signs, or other devices furnished, erected and maintained by you are in addition to those for which payment is provided elsewhere in the specifications. Provide flaggers whenever necessary to ensure that the public is given safe guidance through the work zone. At locations where traffic is being routed through construction under one-way controls, move your equipment in compliance with the one-way controls unless otherwise ordered. Use of signs, lights, flags, or other protective devices must comply with the California MUTCD and any directions of RCTC. Signs, lights, flags or other protective devices must not obscure the visibility of, nor conflict in intent, meaning, and function of either existing signs, lights and traffic control devices, or any construction area signs. Keep existing traffic signals and highway lighting in operation. Other forces within the Department will perform routine maintenance of these facilities during the work. Cover signs that direct traffic to a closed area. Except for work specified in section 12, maintaining, and removing the covers on construction area signs is change order work. Install temporary illumination such that the illumination and the illumination equipment do not interfere with public safety. The installation of general roadway illumination does not relieve you from furnishing and maintaining any protective devices. Equipment must enter and leave the highway via existing ramps and crossovers and must move in the direction of traffic. All movements of workmen and construction equipment on or across lanes open to traffic must be performed in a manner that do not endanger the public.

Bus & Prof Code § 12001 et seq. To determine the material payment quantities, use measuring devices that have been sealed by the Department of Food and Agriculture's Division of Measurement Standards or its designated representative. If a device is not type approved by the Division of Measurement Standards, type approve it under California Test 109. Notify RCTC at least 1 Business Day before equipment testing. Use material plant controllers having elements affecting the data accuracy and delivery that have been sealed in accordance with the CQMP. Make these elements available to RCTC and the CQVM for inspection. If the elements are adequate for use, the CQVM seals them. If manipulation of the security seal occurs, stop material production. Do not resume production until RCTC and CQVM reinspect the device and the CQVM reseals it. Measure material paid for by weight on sealed scales regularly inspected by the Department of Food and Agriculture's Division of Measurement Standards or its designated representative. Obtain authorization of portable vehicle scale installations before sealing. 9-1.02B(2) Equipment Each scale must be long enough to fit an entire vehicle or a combination vehicle on the scale deck.

Install mechanical indicating elements level, plumb, and rigidly mounted on the concrete undersupports 5. For a hopper scale, rigidly attach the lever systems and mechanical indicating elements such that no weight is lost from bending or support distortion Each scale used to determine material payment quantities must be operated by a licensed weighmaster (Bus & Prof Code § 12700 et seq.). Submit a public weighmaster's certificate or certified daily summary weigh sheets for each weighed material quantity. RCTC may witness material weighing and check and compile the daily scale -weight record. Each vehicle operator must obtain weight or load slips from the weighmaster. Submit these records at the delivery point. 9-1.02B(3) Procedures Each day weigh empty vehicles used to haul material paid for by weight. Each vehicle must have a legible identification mark. RCTC may verify a material weight by having an empty and loaded vehicle weighed on any scale RCTC designates. If imported topsoil, soil amendment, or mulch is measured by volume: 1. Each vehicle must allow for an accurate determination of its contents 2. Unless vehicles are of uniform capacity, each vehicle must have a legible identification mark showing its volumetric capacity 3. Load vehicles to at least the volumetric capacity 4. Level vehicle loads on arrival at the delivery point If determining a quantity paid on a volume basis is impractical or if you request and request is authorized, weigh the material and RCTC converts the result to a volume measurement. RCTC determines the conversion factors and, if you agree, adopts this method of measurement. 9-1.02C RESERVED 9-1.02D Quantities of Aggregate and Other Roadway Materials RCTC determines the weights of aggregate and other roadway material that are being paid for by weight as shown in the following table and does not include the deducted weight of water in their payment quantities: Determination of Quantities of Aggregate and Other Roadway Materials Material Riverside County Transportation Commission Express Lanes Connector Project Exhibit 3 Page 45 of 53 Quantity determination Design -Build Contract Modified Standard Specifications Draft Execution Copy: February 12, 2020 56800652.v31 Aggregate or other roadway material except as otherwise shown in this table By deducting the weight of water in the materiala in excess of 3 percent of the dry weight of the material from the weight of the material Imported borrow, imported topsoil, AB By deducting the weight of water in the materiala in excess of 6 percent of the dry weight of the material from the weight of the material Straw By deducting the weight of water in the materiala in excess of 15 percent of the dry weight of the material from the weight of the material Fiberb RCTC does not deduct the weight of water AB and aggregate for CTBs As specified in section 26 and section 27 NOTE: Percentage of water is determined by California Test 226.
