IRBR: ODOT Opens Bids for Ironton-Russell Bridge Replacement
 
Chillicothe (Thursday, January 12, 2012) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) opened bids today, January 12, for the Ironton-Russell Bridge replacement project in Lawrence County.
 
According to the department’s Office of Contracts, Brayman Construction Company of Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, is the apparent low bidder for the project with a bid of $81,266,742. This amount is 5.7 percent over the state’s final estimate of $76,830,000.
 
“Although this puts us one step closer to construction, we must first review the bidding documents prior to awarding a contract,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson.
 
The review period will take approximately one week.
