BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
In August of 2017, we bid the Backswing/E. Golf paving project and it came in about $140,000 over the engineer’s estimate, so it was decided not to bid Butte & Monument until early in 2018. The project was bid on 3-22-18 and the new bid was $12,190 or 2.4% over the engineer’s estimate.
This project entails the full depth reconstruction of Butte and Monument. This includes all road base construction, placing pavement, and all drainage work, ditches and culverts, as required to properly construct both roads.
It is expected that both roads will be constructed such that their paved road surface will last 20 years plus if maintained and used properly.
The companies bidding this project were Strohecker Asphalt & Paving Inc., Elam Construction and Four Corners Materials.
Strohecker Asphalt & Paving, Inc. was the low bidder at $519,912.50 and the high bid being $649,534. The engineer recommends that Strohecker be awarded the bid based on the nearly $28,350 difference between them and the next lowest bid, and based on their successful performance on very similar projects on Cloud Cap & Lake Forest in 2016.
This fits within budget allocations for 2018.
