Halme gets sidewalk job after all


The Grand Coulee sidewalk project on Main Street and Federal Avenue is going to move forward after some change orders brought the bid in line with the Transportation Improvement Board grant that funds it.

Gray & Osborne told members of the city council last Tuesday night that the change orders totaling just over $50,000 would bring the project in line with the money available and the low bidder wanted to move forward on the work.

The low bid of $440,292 was submitted by Halme Construction of Davenport. The engineer’s estimate on the project had been $356,040.

Change orders for aspects of the job such as pavement repair, excavation, and several small adjustments to the original bid document will bring the project in at $389,792, a Gray & Osborne engineer explained to the council.

The council accepted the new bid total and awarded the contract to Halme.

The project calls for the replacement of sidewalks and gutters, as well as other cosmetic changes, on Main Street and Federal Avenue.
