County Commission accepts bids for nearly $2 million in road work

CARTHAGE, Mo. — Bids that will translate to nearly $2 million in road improvements were approved Tuesday by the Jasper County commission.

The commission accepted bids from a variety of contractors for paving and pavement striping, along with bids from vendors who will supply the asphalt and aggregate for other county road projects in the coming construction season.

Jim Honey, eastern district associate commissioner, noted that bids opened two weeks ago had been reviewed by Tri-State Engineering. He offered motions to accept  what the engineering firm described as “the lowest, responsive bids”  from three different firms.

APAC-Missouri of Springfield will receive the county contract for asphalt paving at an estimated cost of $1,422,245, while Blevins Asphalt Construction, Mount Vernon, will receive the contract for chip and seal projects estimated to cost $455,135. The contract for pavement striping was awarded to Advance Workzone Services, Muskogee, Okla. at a cost of $81,400.

Honey said the cost estimates reflect the cost of materials and labor charged by the firms, based on the amount of projects completed by the county last year.
