13-21 Project Bids Moving on to Scott County Board

The significant demand for construction work, coupled with an industry worker shortage, resulted in an extended bidding window for the Moving Forward 13-21 Downtown Reconstruction Project.

New bids were received in mid-June.These bids came in higher than the initial estimate, but were overall favorable in light of the current construction market. As a result, on Thursday, June 25, the Prior Lake City Council passed a resolution of support with a strong recommendation to Scott County to accept the apparent low bid. The Scott County Board of Commissioners will consider approval of the bids at its July 9 meeting. If the project is awarded by the Scott County board, the selected contractor will then provide an anticipated construction schedule. This schedule will be shared with the community as soon as it’s available. Work is anticipated to begin this summer and be completed in July 2020.

The Project Management Team remains committed to build a quality, cost-effective, and timely project, and we thank you for your patience throughout the construction process!
