YORKTON - Fedorowich Construction of Yorkton has been awarded the paving contract for work on Gladstone Avenue and Smith Street.
For 2022 the majority of Gladstone Avenue South from the roundabout to Broadway Street will receive a surface patch to improve ride-ability over the short term, explained Trent Mandzuk – Director of Public Works, with the city at the regular meeting of Yorkton Council Monday.
The eastern portion of Smith from First Avenue to Sixth Avenue will receive a full width mill/fill asphalt overlay with curb and sidewalk improvements.
Fedorowich Construction was the only bidder for the project at $712,060 (plus taxes).
Mandzuk said while appreciating multiple tenders are preferred to ensure a good price, the unit cost on asphalt in the tender is in line with 2021 numbers.
The tender cost is also under the pre-tender budget of just more than $800,000.
The 2022 paving program will be funded through a combination of roadway and concrete funds from the operating budget.
Council was unanimous in acceptance of the tender.
Completion date deadline for the contract is September 30, 2022.
