Bids opened for Bay Bridge foundations
A joint venture of Traylor Pacific and Weeks Construction is the lowest bidder for the tower foundations for the new eastern span of California's Bay Bridge. The joint venture's price of US$174.5 million beat three other bids of up to US$182.8 million. This was the second time that the contract had been tendered. Only one bidder had responded last year, and client Caltrans had rejected the price of US$210 million. Bidding for the towers takes place later this year.
