HISTORIC JEFFERSON AVENUE FOOTBRIDGE
Rehabilitation Project Update
Oct. 15, 2021
The City has extended the contractor bid deadline
for the Footbridge rehabilitation project
The City of Springfield has issued an addendum to its solicitation for contractor bids for the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge rehabilitation project, extending the deadline for proposal submissions through 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021.
The addendum issues minor modifications to the original bid providing clarification on a few items and allowing more time for interested contracting companies to submit qualified bids.
So far in the solicitation, Public Works has received a lot of questions and apparent interest in the project. Additional time has been requested from several interested bidders. Delaying the bid opening another week will help ensure the project receives as many qualified bids as possible, but is not expected to push back the overall timeline to award the project and move forward with construction. Bid Documents, plans and addendums can be obtained at Springfield Blue Print at (219 E. Pershing) or online at www.spfdblue.com. QUESTIONS?
