McCOOK, Nebraska -- Red Willow County''s armor coating projects for the 2011 summer will cost about $16,000 a mile.
During their meeting Monday morning in the courthouse in McCook, Nebraska, county commissioners accepted the single bid submitted on labor to armor coat 7.5 miles of county roads.
Figgins Construction of Red Cloud submitted these bids:
Sites 1, 2 and 3: From Orscheln's Farm and Home west and north and south from C&K Distributors, the county's portion of Ravenswood Road and one mile south of McCook on Drive 713 to the city's water treatment plant -- 57,000 square yards at 20 cents each, $11,400.
Sites 4 and 5: The Danbury-Marion Cemetery Road and the blacktop south out of Danbury -- 35,879 square yards at 25 cents each, $8,969. The 25-cent rate applies if Figgins hauls the gravel aggregate; if the county hauls the gravel, the price is 20 cents.
Figgins' bid is for labor only, to spread the oil and apply the aggregate. The county will purchase the oil and the aggregate (from Hancock and Paulsen gravel pits) for about $110,000. The county will haul the gravel to the two Danbury locations.
Donna Figgins said they will be working in McCook until Aug. 15, and can then start on the county's projects.
