a contract for
the Far West campus new roadway
Fischer Excavating Inc., Freeport, IL
an estimated $185,835.
An extension of 250 feet of additional roadway is needed to complete an ongoing project with IDOT.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
current IDOT contractor is currently on site building the IDOT project, which has been designed by the same engineering firm. An apartment complex for students with dependents is scheduled to open for the fall semester and all sitework must be completed by the middle of August. Having this contractor already mobilized on site will give the university the best advantage to meeting the schedule.
