Supervisors receive bridge repair bids

Grundy County Engineer Gary Mauer opened bids on a pair of bridge projects during Monday morning’s regular supervisors meeting, and further action was tabled to provide time for a thorough review of the details.


Bridge I-1, a three-ton located about a mile and a half south of D35, is up for replacement, and Boulder Contracting of Grundy Center and PCI of Reinbeck were the only two bidders. Both bid on the same alternate, and PCI ($249,823) came in about $30,000 lower than Boulder ($279,772). The engineer’s estimate for the project was $319,635.50.


The other project, Bridge A-05, is a box culvert on Westbrook Avenue, which runs along the Grundy-Butler County line, and three bids were received. PCI bid $86,935 for a precast culvert, while Gus Construction of Casey ($82,267.50) and McCulley Culvert of Barnes City ($113,738) each bid on a cast in place culvert. The engineer’s estimate was $106,467.
