Century To Begin $250K Drainage Project

October 26, 2010

Work is scheduled to begin next week on a Century drainage project funded with over a quarter million federal stimulus dollars.

The project includes drainage ditches and storm water pipe installations in the Dogwood area — south of the former Century High School including Mayo Street, Mayo Lane, Hecker Road, Archie Street, Dogwood Avenue and B Street.

Construction is scheduled to begin November 1 and continue through the end of February 2011.

The Town of Century awarded the $269,449 drainage improvement contract to Gulf Equipment Company. Gulf Equipment was one of six bidders on the project, with their bid over $30,000 less than the second place company, according to Dale Long of Fabre Engineering. Gulf Equipment’s bid was well below the $370,000 budgeted for the project.

“They do a good job and are a very reputable firm,” Long told the Century Town Council recently.
