Work is expected to begin later this spring on 15 road improvement or paving projects in the County. Public Works superintendent Herb Pfau says they were able to save around half a million dollars from what had been originally budgeted for this work. He attributes that to bundling several projects into two seperate RFP’s.
“When you put them all together, industry takes a little harder look at them. We put estimates together but to industry, these are real costs when they tender or put their prices down.”
Wapiti Gravel Suppliers were awarded both contracts, at a total cost of over 12.5 million dollars. Pfau says the work is scattered across the entire County.
