It will be a little longer before a project begins to rebuild the south end of Sayle Street.

City Manager Massoud Ebrahim said the one bid received for the effort has been rejected.

“We moved to reject the bid because it is not competitive and we don’t know if it is a good price or a bad price,” Ebrahim told the Greenville City Council.

It may not take that long to determine who will get the job of rebuilding a portion of one of Greenville’s busiest streets.

Only one bid was received for the reconstruction of the south end of Sayle Street, although the estimate came in a little higher than what city officials were expecting.

Pavecon Public Works LP was the sole bidder on the project, submitting an estimate of $988,166.55. The sealed bid was opened and made public Thursday afternoon and will now be evaluated and presented to the Greenville City Council for its consideration.

The bids will be evaluated and then presented to the Greenville City Council for approval.

The Greenville City Council voted Tuesday to raise the speed limit of one of the main roads which passes through the Ardis Heights community.

“This segment of the road is FM 499, which is also called Forester Street,” said City Manager Massoud Ebrahim. “The speed limit can be raised by 5 mph.”

Work is expected to begin early next year on the first phase of a major street reconstruction project. Portions of three busy Greenville streets will be rebuilt under the first stage of the effort, which was approved by local voters in May.

The rebuilding of Stonewall Street between Mockingbird Lane and Interstate 30, Sayle Street between Kari Lane and Interstate 30, and Webb Street between Sayle and Wesley Streets will be the first phase, according to Greenville City Manager Massoud Ebrahim.
