The Baltimore Street Access Project will cost more…about $2 million more than originally projected. Two bids were submitted for the project, which includes replacing underground utility lines, and creating a new streetscape with parklets, trees, and shrubs. Triton construction of St. Albans, West Virginia was the apparent low bidder for the project, with a base bid of $14.6 million and an alternate bid of $15.2 million. About 12-1/2 million dollars were budgeted for the project with city officials expressing confidence they can bridge the funding gap. Nearly $9.5 million has been secured in state and federal grants thus far, for the project.
