Bedford City Commissioners approved work on a few areas of the city sidewalks during a special meeting Wednesday.
Commissioners chose to accept a low-bid estimate of $3,100 from Chris Bell of Bedford to work on replacing sections of sidewalks along U.S. 421 and U.S. 42 that have lifted or broken. Commissioner Harold Greene discussed sidewalk areas near the doctors' offices on U.S. 421, behind the Marathon gas station on U.S. 421, near the car lot on U.S. 42 across from the Courthouse and across from the former public library building on U.S. 42 that need to be replaced.
Mayor Russell Clifton and commissioners approved a motion to accept the bid 3-1 with Commissioner Todd Pollock casting an opposing vote. Commissioner Frank Floyd was absent.
The estimate includes the use of 3500 mix concrete, four inches thick. Rebar and fibers will be used in the sidewalk for reinforcement and a light broom finish will be completed for the price, Bell said by phone.
Bell will also clean out the roots and haul away the old sidewalk pieces, he said.
He expects to begin on the project Monday so the sidewalk work won't be in the way of the Trimble County Apple Festival.
Luhn & Oak Construction of Carrollton also had submitted a bid for the project of $8,970. Greene had asked for two estimates for the sidewalk work, which was not advertised since the project was less than $20,000.
