BIDS OPENED FOR SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL PROJECT

The Borough of Newville on July 2, 2013 at 1:00PM opened bids for the Newville Safe Routes to School Project. This is a federally funded project, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Bids were received as follows: Valley Quarries, Chambersburg $308,932.85; Heim Construction Company Inc., Pottsville $315,158; M&B Services LLC, Clarion $344,771. Bids will be reviewed and tabulated by the Borough Engineer. The Newville Borough Council will discuss the bids at a Special Meeting called for July 9, 2013 at 7:00PM. The Newville Safe Routes to School Project is intended to improve pedestrian accessibility to the Newville Elementary School of the Big Spring School District. The project generally consists of reconstructing an access road through the Newville Community Park, installation of a parallel storm water drainage system on West Street; installation of sidewalk and curbs on West Street and Green Street (Steelstown Road), thermoplast crosswalks at key intersections, and the installation of a solar powered pedestrian crossing signal at the intersection of West Street and West Main Street. The project is expected to begin in August, and will be completed in the spring of 2014.
