Bids Opened on Region 8 Road Projects

NOVEMBER 18, 2004 - Posted at 7:51 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Missouri firm is the apparent low bidder on the largest of several Arkansas highway projects.

Dumey Contracting, Inc. of Benton, Missouri, offered to build an interchange and frontage roads at the intersection of U.S. 63 and Arkansas 118 near Tyronza for $14.4 million.

The work is part of an ongoing project to upgrade U.S. 63 to federal interstate standards between Jonesboro and Interstate-55 in northern Crittenden County.  When completed, the new highway will be known as Interstate-555.

Other projects on which the apparent low bid exceeded $1 million include that of the Salt Creek Paving and Construction Company of Benton, $4.9 million to build four sections of passing lanes on U.S. 64, between Wynne and the Woodruff County line.
