Construction project comes in $150,000 below estimate

A construction project that will repave Brookside Lane, Larson Lane, Hoganson Lane and Norway Street in the Village of Ephraim has a bid in place for just over $192-thousand dollars, contingency included, when original estimates were $350-thousand. 

Administrator Brent Bristol explains the reason behind the discrepancy is the ability of the city to avoid the “Door County premium.” The village was able to contract with the Door County Highway Department to complete the paving which involves local contractors. When crews are brought up from Green Bay or the Fox Valley they usually demand additional compensation and insist on the cost of transporting equipment to be defrayed. 

The roads that are being repaved were subjected to extra traffic last year since they were the detour routes for the streetscape project construction.
