Salem contractor pegged to build 3.4 mile segment of Lake Oswego pipeline
The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership has recommended that a $12.1 million contract for a 3.4-mile stretch of pipeline running through Lake Oswego go to a Salem-based construction company.
Emery & Sons Construction has experience working on public projects for wastewater, transportation and drinking water. Four contractors submitted bids for the project, and Emery & Sons' was the lowest, coming in about $660,000 below project estimates, city officials report.
The pipeline section is one of six segments to be built as part of the water partnership's system upgrades. The pipeline will extend through Lake Oswego from Fifth Street and Cabana Lane to a new reservoir that will be built near Waluga Park.
The Lake Oswego City Council, which acts as the water partnership's managing partner, will consider the contract award recommendation next month.Open link to external content ➧
