Exciting News: Bids in for Leucadia sidewalks
Bids in for Leucadia sidewalk project
By: North County Times
ENCINITAS -- Nine companies submitted bids for a Leucadia sidewalk project and the lowest bidder looks to be Bonsall Construction Services, a city Public Works Department official said Tuesday.
The company bid $388,744 for the job -- a figure that is below the city's estimate, which was $400,000, Deputy City Engineer Leroy Bodas said.
Over the next few days, city employees will be going line-by-line through the bid offer, and if everything checks out OK, the contract could be awarded by the City Council at its Aug. 22 meeting, Bodas said.
The construction work would take in a 3,000-foot strip along the Coast Highway North Court to Juniper Street. Work is scheduled to begin after Labor Day weekend, and the project is expected to last about three months, Bodas said.
"We're filling in the open areas that don't have curbs and gutters," he said.
*NOTE--As pointed out in the comments section the photos above are not areas that are going to benefit from this latest sidewalk project. I used them to show that the entire coastal corridor of Leucadia needs some TLC and not just the area mentioned in the NCT article. Sorry for the confusion.
