Bids sought on multiple street projects

GREENVILLE — Two weeks from today, City of Greenville officials will learn how many contractors are interested in rebuilding three local streets and/or performing maintenance work on several others.

The city is currently seeking bids from companies wanting to complete projects to rebuild the south end of Sayle Street, the south end of Stonewall Street and Webb Street between Sayle and Wesley Streets.

The city is also awaiting bids on the 2014 Street Improvement Program.

Bids on both are due back on the afternoon of June 17, after which they will be opened and evaluated by city staff before being presented to the Greenville City Council for its consideration.

Local voters approved bonds one year ago for the three reconstruction projects, which combined are expected to cost about $5 million.

The 2014 Street Improvement Program, which has a $1 million budget this year.

It is hoped the size of the entire project will help attract bids from several contractors interested in taking on the work. The city was unable to start the Sayle Street project in March, after receiving only one bid, which came in over the estimated budget.

On May 11, 2013 voters approved the issuance of $12.6 million in bonds to pay for the reconstruction of nine local streets.

The 2014 Street Improvement Program will not include any new construction, but will involve individual projects on portions of approximately two dozen streets in Greenville, divided among the six City Council precincts. The work will involve milling, overlaying, chip sealing and micro-surfacing on the streets.
