City Bids Utility and Street Improvement Project
At their July 11 meeting, the Pierre City Commission approved a request to bid the rebuilding of one block of Pawnee Street and to replace the utilities underneath it.
As part of the project the block of street, located between Sioux and Dakota Avenues, will also receive new curb and gutter.
John Childs, City Engineer, says that he hopes the late season bid will work in the City’s favor.
“Typically, we bid these types of projects earlier in the season,” said Childs. “In talking with local contractors, we learned most didn’t have much spring and early summer capacity remaining. We believe some contractor opportunity opens up as we get closer to fall.”
Bids are due July 27. If bids come back favorably, the work will be completed in early November.
