Ford Road Bridge Bids

According to an article in the Zionsville Times Sentinel, three bids have been received for construction of the new Ford Road bridge:

  • Yates Construction Inc., of Kentland: $1,599,872.46
  • Duncan Robertson Inc., of Franklin: $1,642,378.50
  • American Contracting and Service, of Jeffersonville: $1,826,861.92

Adding the construction cost for the new concrete bridge to the engineering fees already spent for previous concrete and truss bridge plans and the federal construction matching funds lost last year, the Ford Road bridge replacement has cost Boone County taxpayers at least:

  • Engineering fees: $547,000
  • Lost federal matching funds: $2,580,000
  • Construction costs: $1,600,000+
  • Total: $4,727,000+

Boone County Highway Superintendent Rick Carney will review the bids and recommend a winner to the Boone County Commissioners at a 9am meeting on June 24.
