County rejects culvert work bid

September 15, 2005|by TARA REILLY

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday rejected the only bid the county received for culvert replacement work.

The commissioners turned down the bid from Building Systems Inc. of Hagerstown for $440,936. Commissioner James F. Kercheval abstained from the vote.

The county plans to rework the bid documents and readvertise the project in the hopes of attracting more bidders.

The project includes culvert replacements at Harpers Ferry, Nick and Toms roads. The work includes the removal of an existing deteriorated culvert with the placement of a reinforced concrete pipe, cast-in-place concrete endwalls and installment of a new traffic barrier, according to information provided by the county.
