Olive Branch accepts $2.1M bid to fix streets

OLIVE BRANCH — Olive Branch officials have accepted a $2.1 million bid for the first batch of street repairs and repaving on 49 of the worst roads in the city.

On Tuesday, the Board of Aldermen also authorized staff to begin seeking bids for phase two of street repaving. Both projects are expected to be finished by summer’s end.

The Commercial Appeal reports three bids were submitted. Lehman-Roberts, with a bid of $2.1 million, was awarded the job.

City engineer Steve Bigelow says most of the streets in phase one are in the older parts of the city or in older subdivisions. He says the city’s streets were surveyed, and the worst streets went to the top of the priority list.

The second phase lists 22 streets for repair and repaving.
