Council Accepts Bid for South Marshall Reconstruction

Posted on 02 April 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council has approved the bid received by the Iowa Department of Transportation for the reconstruction of a portion of South Marshall Street, from First Street to a spot south of Prairie Street.  The IDOT received four bids, with the low bid received from Godbersen-Smith Construction Company from Ida Grove.  The low bid was $782,613.20 and according to City Engineer Wayne Schwartz, was roughly 12% below the estimates.  Schwartz told the Council that the latest start date would be mid-July.  He said the earliest may be within a month.

Because of the traffic on South Marshall and due to the number of residents that would be affected, the project will be done in stages with a completion in 65 working days.  The work will also include some storm sewer work on the south end of the construction project.
