East Side, West Side, all around the town ...

That's where the City of Greencastle street resurfacing and sidewalk replacement projects are scheduled for 2011.

During a brief special session Wednesday, the Greencastle Board of Public Works and Safety unanimously authorized Mayor Sue Murray to sign a notice of award and notice to proceed on the two separate projects.

Wabash Valley Asphalt, Terre Haute, was the successful bidder on the street resurfacing project at $149,640.80.

Wabash Valley was the lone bidder on the work, although another firm reported picked up an information packet on the project but did not submit a bid.

Joe Spiker Excavating and Construction, Greencastle, was the low bidder on the sidewalk removal and replacement project at $106,931. The sidewalk work was stipulated for substantial completion by Oct. 1.

The only other bidder on the sidewalk project was Bret Hurley Construction, Greencastle, at $136,020.

The street repaving and resurfacing work will include portions of Wood Street, Locust Street, Jackson Boulevard, Olive Street, Toddson Drive and Frazier Street.

  • It's about time they did something to

    Jackson Blvd. It's been a mess for years.

    They really need a sidewalk on Arlington from

    Washington to Anderson street for all the

    children going to the park and parents

    pushing strollers with babies. There will

    be someone killed the way people use

    Arlington St. to by-pass the light at

    Washington and Bloomington St. They just

    fly when they turn onto Arlington off of
