February 26, 2004|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

During the Hagerstown mayor and City Council voting session Tuesday, a Sparks, Md., company was awarded a contract to provide engineering services to widen Eastern Boulevard and a Hagerstown company was awarded a contract to relocate the electric substation at Municipal Stadium on Memorial Boulevard.

Johnson, Mirmiran and Thomas submitted the winning bid of $148,937 for the Eastern Boulevard project, beating out proposals from two Baltimore firms and a Hunt Valley, Md., firm.

In anticipation of several building projects along Eastern Boulevard, the city will widen the road to four lanes between Conrad Court and Jefferson Boulevard/Md. 64.

Mayor William Breichner said the company will conduct land surveys and design the overall project, but he didn't expect the construction phase - estimated to cost $2.4 million - to begin before this time next year.

For the Municipal Stadium contract, Raidt Electric LLC's winning bid of $9,717 beat out bids of $15,000 from Haynes & Son Electric and $15,870 from Ellsworth Electric, both of Hagerstown.

Breichner said that in its current location, the substation narrows a path for stadium attendees. It will be moved outside the stadium.
