A contract for street and water line improvements on South Elm Street, from Oklahoma Avenue to Grand Avenue, was awarded to River Ridge Construction, LLC, of Newkirk during Monday night’s City Commission meeting.
The $314,762.82 project is the third phase of a project to improve Elm Street from Otoe Avenue to Grand Avenue.
The project will include reconstruction of the street, sidewalks and driveways, as well as replacement of the water line, City Engineer Jim Fairbanks said.
Fairbanks told commissioners six contractors came to mandatory pre-bid meeting but only two bids were submitted. The bid from River Ridge was 25 percent below the engineer’s estimate, Fairbanks said.
