Bids accepted for projects

The Arkansas Highway Commission opened bids on May 20 for several projects, including two in Lawrence County. The projects are being funded through the economic stimulus package.

The largest bid let was for the foundation of the new U.S. Highway 67 from Arkansas 230 to Highway 63, south of Hoxie. Dumey Contracting of Benton, Mo., was the apparent low bidder for the project, which includes construction of embankments and bridges, earthwork, drainage structures and interchanges in the 9.9-mile section.

"This project will connect to a project currently under construction that is widening Highway 67 to four lanes from Highway 226 northward to Highway 230 in Jackson County," Commissioner John Ed Regenold of Armorel said. "Ultimately, Highway 67 will be four lanes from Hoxie southward to Newport."

The bid of $24,816.799.11 was about $7 million less than projected. The contractor will have 400 working days to complete the project. The project is expected to be complete in late 2011.

The other project will be the resurfacing of a quarter mile of Main Street in downtown Walnut Ridge. Atlas Asphalt had the winning bid of $117,861.40. The rehab work will be done from intersection with Highway 67B South (Highway 34) to Highway 67B North (Northeast Fourth).

This project is expected to be complete by Sept. 14.
