The Marquette Council chose, at its March 15 meeting, to take more time to consider construction bids for the city’s Edgar Street project, which will include sanitary sewer work and development of a bike/pedestrian trail.
Four companies bid on the project, said project engineer Bart Nies, from Delta 3 Engineering, with some bids coming in as much as $42,000 to $43,000 below the estimated project cost of $302,750.
“We got some great numbers,” he told the council. “It’s a good time of year to bid.”
