Bids opened for new Liberty Memorial Bridge
Lunda Construction is the apparent low bidder for a new bridge over the Missouri River in North Dakota. The US$47.3 million bid to build the bridge was below the state Department of Transport estimates. Lunda priced the contract on the basis of a steel structure. No bids were received for the concrete alternative, though there was one other tender for the steel option, from Industrial Builders. The bridge had originally been tendered last year when it attracted no bids. The contract is now expected to be awarded within the next few weeks.
