The Utah Department of Transportation has opened bids for more than $10 million in highway construction projects:
- Gilbert Western of Salt Lake City bid $2.27 million for construction of the "A-Line" highway to run south of the Jordanelle Dam.- Geneva Rock Products of Orem submitted a low bid of about $200,000 to re-pave 2.2 miles of U.S. 89 in American Fork.
- J.M. Sumsion & Sons of Spanish Fork was the low bidder for resurfacing 14.5 miles of I-15 from south Santaquin to Spanish Fork. The project will cost $3.5 million.
- Ralph Wadsworth Construction of Salt Lake City bid $1.1 million for a project to replace bridge structures that carry traffic over Santaquin Canyon.
- J.M. Sumsion & Sons of Spanish Fork also was the low bidder for a road resurfacing project on U.S. 191 near Moab. Because the 9.5 mile project will cost about $800,000 - more than 10 percent above UDOT estimates - UDOT may re-advertise the bid.
- LeGrand Johnson Construction of Logan was the apparent low bidder for a $2.8 million highway widening project, also near Moab on U.S. 191.
All low bids will now be reviewed by UDOT officials before being awarded.
