Two major Lubbock projects get bids that are well under budget

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The City of Lubbock received bids on Thursday for two major Lubbock projects, and they came in well under budget.

The expansion of South Indiana Avenue from 103rd street to F.M. 1585, when complete, will be seven lanes wide. The city budgeted $12 million. Officials say the low bid from Allen Butler is only $8.7 million.

The Lake Alan Henry water pipeline project, phase 1, was budgeted for $40 million. When Thursday's bids were unsealed, the lowest was less than half that cost; $19.6 million from Wright Construction.

Mayor Tom Martin says, "I am very pleased with these bids."

Both the pipeline and the Indiana expansion bids must be approved by City Council in order to become official.
