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 City of Greenville has begun seeking bids on the first phase of a major street reconstruction project.
The city began advertising Saturday for bids on the rebuilding of the south end of Sayle Street. Bids will be accepted through the office of the City of Greenville Purchasing Agent through the afternoon of March 6, at which time they will be opened and made public. The bids will be evaluated and then presented to the Greenville City Council for approval.
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.
