Bids Opened for City’s Fall Street Projects

August 28, 2018

Plymouth Color Logo2014Bids were open for the 2018 Fall Street and Sidewalk Projects during Monday evenings Board of Public Works and Safety Meeting.  Three companies submitted quotes with E & B Paving out of Rochester being the highest at $509,104.42.  Walsh and Kelly out of South Bend had the next highest bid at $478,033 and the low bid was from Reith-Riley Construction from South Bend at $458,856.

City Engineer Rick Gaul asked the Board of Public Works to give him and Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt permission to work with the Clerk Treasurer and Mayor to select the lowest bid and once the funding has been determined move forward.

The Board of Works approved the request.

Superintendent Marquardt presented a priority list of the seven proposed projects to be completed during the fall round of street and sidewalk projects.

The first project on the priority list is Randolph Street from Baker Street north to the river bridge.  Marquardt said after the flood Bailey Street from Jackson Street to Shalley Drive has experiences several problems.   Pearson Place from Hillcrest Avenue to Felix Place has core samples that show the road is in bad shape and breaking up.  Fourth on the list is Bayless Street from Webster Avenue to the south alley.  Marquardt said, “That would help finish up the micro-paving project we did on Webster bringing it into ADA standards.”  Jackson Street from Michigan Street to Bailey is fifth on the list followed by Baker Street from Randolph Street to Columbus Drive.

The final project on the list is Michigan Street from Lemler to the Oakhill intersection.  This project would encompass everything that was changed when the city installed the new traffic light bringing it all into one surface with striping.

Gaul said the projects will be mill and fills.  The projects also include ADA upgrades to the sidewalk intersections where needed.
