City awards bid for street paving

Special meeting called due to deadline change


An Indianapolis company was awarded a contract Friday for the latest round of street paving in Crawfordsville.

In a special meeting, the board of public works and safety approved a nearly $622,032 bid from DC Construction for the projects. The work is being funded through Indiana’s Community Crossings Matching Grant program.

The board had opened bids during its regular meeting Wednesday and planned to select a company next week before learning that the state’s contract award deadline had changed. DC Construction submitted the lower of the two bids received.

The projects include the first phase of a project to pave East Wabash Avenue from the bridge at Mill Street to the railroad tracks near California Pellet Mill Co. Other sections will be resurfaced in future years.

Other streets on the city’s list this year are Grant Avenue from Chestnut Street to Wabash Avenue, Sloan Street from Meadow Avenue to the dead end, Vandalia and Ray streets from Mill Street to Southgate Drive and Chestnut Street from Mill Street to Wallace Avenue.

Crawfordsville was awarded more than $827,260 last year in Community Crossings matching funds for road projects. The city must match half of the cost.

The city has received more than $1.5 million since the program began in 2016.
