The Pulaski County Commissioners this week opened bids for repairs on Bridge 268, with costs ranging from as low as $169,999.99 to $312,903.27. According to highway superintendent Mark Fox, the work needs to be done this fall.
American Contracting Service offered a bid of $302,515.20, while LaPorte Construction submitted a bid for $181,102.35. Jack Isom Construction sent in a bid for $169,999.99, JCI Bridge Group submitted one for $176,527.32, and Yates Construction entered their bid for $312.903.27. Rieth-Riley Construction entered a bid of $299,988.
The commissioners tabled these bids to be reviewed.
Meanwhile, Fox also presented the commissioners with the county’s updated road inventory list, including 12 miles of road that had previously not been on the state’s inventory of roads for the county. Fox explained that he compared the state GIS records to the local GIS records and found 46 sections of road that were not in the state’s inventory, preventing roughly $25,000 per year from being funded to the county.
The commissioners approved a motion to update the records as appropriate.
