Bidding Was Close

Bids were opened this past week on the Highway 100 median project in Washington. Perhaps it would be more correct to say on the Highway 100 beautification project. With whatever it is called, the bids came in very close in price, and within the budgeted amount.

Several things can be extrapolated from the numbers. There were six construction firms that submitted bids. Five were relatively close, and the sixth, the high bidder, wasn’t that far off the low bid. The bidders apparently really did their homework on the project. Another indication is that the construction firms need work and looked at their cost and their profit very carefully. In better economic times, there may not have been this much interest.
