Supervisors to Address Industrial Park Road Project Bids Wednesday

Posted on 29 January 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Board of Supervisors will take the next step in moving ahead with the Industrial Park Road reconstruction project.  Bids for the work that will be done on the Industrial Park Road and also Quartz Avenue to the south will be considered Wednesday afternoon as part of the meeting for the Supervisors.  Originally, the city’s portion of the work would have included turning lanes, a wider road surface and construction to federal standards.  Since the city has found out that federal dollars allocated to the Corporal Snedden Drive Overpass project will not be available, the Council has decided to make use of Tax Increment Finance dollars available from an Urban Renewal Area established in the early 90’s.  The increment amounts to about $74,000 which should cover the payments for the city’s share of the work.  For the past several years, those tax dollars had gone primarily to the Boone County and the Boone and United School Districts.  Boone County has also secured funds to assist with the project and there will be a contribution from an industrial park business.  The Industrial Park Road bids will be the first in a series of three bids for the Supervisors over the next couple of weeks.  In February, bids are expected for the paving of streets at the Central Iowa Expo Site and the following week, bids are expected for the “E” Avenue paving project west of Ogden.
