Columbus company wins street paving bid

A Columbus company, Castle Construction Co., was the successful bidder last Tuesday night, May 12, for Albion’s concrete street paving projects.

Castle’s total bid of $389,248 was the lowest of six bids submitted, but it was about $14,000 higher than the initial engineer’s estimate of $375,000 for the four projects.

The projects will include removal and replacement of concrete paving, curb and gutter on:

  • Marengo Street from Second to Fourth Street;
  • a half block of Main Street from railroad tracks east to Second Street;
  • Depot Street from the Main and Second Street intersection to Sale Barn Road;
  • Intersections at Walnut and First Street and Walnut and A Street.

Construction is expected to start by July 27, and completion is estimated by Nov. 15, 2009.
