The Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee and the city of Greer will rebid the Greer Station Streetscape project after receiving one submission at the bid opening on Nov. 8.
Ed Driggers, Greer city administrator, said the $11,757,838 bid from Sossamon Construction exceeded pre-bid projections. City officials worked on value engineering options in an effort to reduce the anticipated cost of construction and the project was rebid Monday, Nov. 19, according to a news release. General contractors have a 31-day window to submit bids.
“We have an obligation to our community to be conscious of the overall budget while delivering the quality promised in this project,” Driggers said. “Greer City Council mandated that this work would be done with no millage or business license increase and we will honor that commitment.”
Driggers said, in the release, that the project remains on schedule for completion by June 30, 2020.
The streetscape project includes work on all roads in the central business district. The centerpiece is transforming Trade Street through a shared street design — milling it down to one inch below the curb line, installing pavers, repairing all broken curbing and gutters, ensuring ADA accessibility, and installing all new landscaping and lighting, the release said.
