Construction Contracts Awarded


May, Bill, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority awarded eight construction contracts Thursday worth $50.7 million.

This prompted Chairman Fred J. Hall of Oklahoma City to call Thursday "a historic day, because it's the largest bid-letting in the history of the turnpike authority."

The action means that one-third of the work on the three urban turnpikes is under contract, said Gillette Cobb of the firm of Chiang, Patel & Yerby of Oklahoma City, project managers for the improvements. Bidding on the eight contracts was so competitive that the final cost was $18 million below the programmed amount, Cobb said. It's good that construction costs are running less than anticipated because right-of-way acquisition is costing more than anticipated, said Neal McCaleb, authority director. The authority paid $560,000 for 2.25 acres for Creek Turnpike right of way from Daniel S. Buford and another 24.87 acres from Mattie M. Dark for $300,000. Another 19.1 acres were purchased from John E. Payne Jr. for $500,000. This will provide right of way for the H.E.

Four other companies also submitted bids on this project. * HEB-1541 -- which includes 0.09 miles of bridge construction, with two bridges on the mainline and one section line bridge northwest of the intersection of U.S. 62/State Highway 9 in McClain County. Muskogee Bridge Co. of Muskogee received the $1.3 million contract, which was 9.1 percent below the engineer's estimate of $1.4 million. Three other bids were submitted on the project. * JKT-1235 -- which includes 6.7 miles of roadway construction, with grading and draining of the mainline roadway and eight interchange ramps; grading, drainage and paving for cross street construction, and grading, drainage and related work from just north of NW 36th St. to just west of County Line Road in Oklahoma City, Canadian County. Sewell Bros. Construction of Cordell submitted the low bid of $15. …
