Stanley street re-striping receives bids, will be discussed at next Public Works meeting
By Joe Bachman
STEVENS POINT — Public works officials will discuss a bid for the Stanley street re-striping project on Sept. 10.
Multiple bids have come in from Central Fence Company out of Pewaukee, which outline two separate routes to take for the controversial street. These bids come with contingencies attached with them.
The base plan is to run the markings from Michigan Avenue to Indiana Avenue, while the alternate option would be to run these from Michigan Avenue to Lindbergh Avenue. There will be two options: epoxy paint versus waterborne paint. The differences could be discussed at the Monday meeting, as both carry different benefits and disadvantages.
-The total estimated project cost for the base package is in the amount of $84,261.09 with a $96,900.25 contingency.
-The total estimated project cost for the alternate package is in the amount of $72,211.46 with a $83,043.18 contingency.
Also on the docket will be discussion of whether or not to create an ordinance to install stop signs on Minnesota Avenue and Stanley Street.
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Stevens Point Police Department, 933 Michigan Avenue.
