CALEXICO — In a special meeting of the City Council here tonight, council members will likely award a nearly $375,000 bid for the continuation of this city's comprehensive street overlay program.
Calexico Public Works Director Mariano Martinez said three and a half to four miles of city streets will be treated with a two-inch cap of rubberized asphalt.
The longest stretches of roadway addressed by the program will be the 1-mile length of Cesar Chavez Boulevard from Highway 98 to Second Street; three-quarters of a mile of Second Street from Imperial Avenue to west of the airport; and a half mile of Blair Avenue south of 98. Martinez said a number of smaller streets also will be repaired.
He added the recommendation is the City Council award a contract to Granite Construction of El Centro, which bid on the project at $374,955. Martinez said the only other bid was by Val-Rock Inc. of Seeley, which bid more than $400,000.
