Here are the projects that are being let at the March 2021 KDOT letting.
This post has been updated to reflect the approved bidders and the bid amount. KDOT did not put out a press release with the awarded bids for the March letting, but did put out one for the April letting on May 18 which included awarded bids for March. Most of the bids were published on their website. The approved bids found on the website will be noted in red. The approved bids announced in the May 18 press release will be noted in blue.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not affected the ability of KDOT to put projects up for bids. However, KDOT did post the following note with the list of projects for the April letting:
The Kansas Department of Transportation April 22, 2020 Letting WILL remain as scheduled with possible procedural changes to accommodate public building restrictions due to the COVID-19 emergency. We will be in contact and keep you updated as details become available. Thanks.
Most likely, this means that the bids will be opened on a conference call. The March bids were read in this manner.
KDOT had a little issue with this letting… due to the US department of Labor changing the prevailing wage rates, the all of the bids for this letting had to be discarded and a special letting called for March 10th.
I’ve added some photos from a little train-watching trip near Quenemo.
Last Saturday, I had a small group of fellow road enthusiests in Lawrence for a “roadgeek meet.” Basically, we all get together and had lunch, then toured the area roads. For this meet, I chose K-10, US 59, and the new Kansas Turnpike Bridge. I don’t have any pics from the latter. During our outing, I spotted a gaffe on US 59. I did not get a picture during the meet; however, I was able to return to get a picture on Monday.
