Consideration of Award of the 2018 Nolan Street Water Improvement Project
The Bid Opening for the Nolan Street Water Improvement Project was held on August 14, 2018.  Two Bids were received for the Project, but one bid was determined to be non-qualified due to the bidder not being on WYDOT’s Prequalified Contractors List with an unexpired membership, as required in the Call for Bids and Contract Documents.  The only qualified bid is from Longhorn Construction, Inc. in the amount of $190,904.50 for the work outlined in the Project Documents.  The project includes the replacement of existing water and sewer mains and services in Nolan Street and the adjacent Alley.  The Engineer’s Estimate was approximately $150,000 for this schedule of work.  Bid Alternative A will not be awarded.
