PWA approves Lyle Road water/sewer line bids

  • File The Weatherford Public Works Authority accepted a bid of $2,184,087 for water line/sewer line work on Lyle Road.

The City of Weatherford will spend $2,184,087 for water and sewer line improvements to Lyle Road.

The Weatherford Public Works Authority approved that bid from True Solutions, of Woodward, by a vote of 4-0 during Friday’s meeting.

Matthew Coe, with Myers Engineering, said the company has experience and satisfactory performance for the type of work needed for the project.

“We have worked with True Solutions before,” Coe said.

Bids included: True Solutions, of Woodward, for $2,184,087; Matthews Trenching, of Oklahoma City, for $2,998,409; Goins Enterprises, of Joplin, Missouri, for $4,295,656; and Young Contracting, of Oklahoma City, for $2,699,871.

Last month, commissioners rejected bids for sanitary sewer line improvements for Lyle Road.

By rejecting those bids, the city needed to rebid the project, which they did with the water line improvements added in.

This bid continues the process of the city’s project to widen Lyle Road from Main/Davis through Rader Park.

The widening project is being funded by a half-cent sales tax, which was passed by voters in 2018.
