Second Avenue construction bid on Monday agenda

Among the items of business scheduled for Monday’s Worthington City Council meeting is the potential awarding of a contract for the reconstruction of Second Avenue from 10th Street to 12th Street.

Council members had approved the advertisement for bids for the reconstruction of Second Avenue during their meeting on April 10. Bids were opened on Wednesday with two bids received. Henning Construction had the lowest bid at $1,227,500, while Duininck Inc.’s bid was at $1,456,460.

As the engineer's estimate was $1,150,172.50, the low bid was 6.7% --or $77,327.59 over the estimate. The funding for this project is from the Municipal State Aid Street construction allotment with some assessment for sewer services and local funding for water main and storm sewer connections.

In a separate matter, the council will consider the approval of plans for 2023 mill and overlay, including Lake Street from Second Avenue to Third Avenue, Nobles Street from East Avenue to the Union Pacific Railroad and Bantom Place. City staff have prepared plans and specifications, and the project will include the mill and overlay of the existing bituminous surface and the construction of Americans with Disabilities Act sidewalk ramps connecting to the streets. The starting date is scheduled for June 1 with an anticipated substantial completion date of Aug. 18.

The council is also expected to consider approval of a feasibility report for the improvement of Shell Street from Lake Avenue to Ninth Street and order a public hearing for the proposed Shell Street improvements. The public hearing has been planned for 7 p.m. May 22 at City Hall.
