Helena Project Update
Hi Friends and Neighbors
Here is a note about the Helena Project!
We just posted the info below on to our project page. Feel free to share this anywhere else you'd like. A link to our project page is also below. Let me know if you have any questions, and have a good weekend!
This project is currently out for bids, and bids are scheduled to be submitted by June 10, 2021.
As part of the final design of the project, it was determined that more storm sewer work was needed than originally planned. Additionally, potential conflicts with the MG&E gas mains were identified in the design process, so MG&E is also planning to replace the majority of their gas mains within the project area. With this extra work taking place, it would be very unlikely that all of the construction could be completed in 2021. With that in mind, the project has been bid with a flexible schedule, so the Contractor that is awarded this contract will have the option to complete some work in 2021 and some in 2022 or all of the work in 2022. MG&E still plans to do their gas main work later this summer, regardless of the City's Contractor's schedule. Ultimately, the total number of construction days will be about the same whether the City's work is split between 2021 and 2022 or all in 2022. Once a firmer construction schedule is known, mailings will be sent to the nearby residents, and additional information will be posted on this project page.
