Elk River will advertise for public works expansion project bids

Plans are progressing for a large expansion to Elk River’s public works facility.
The Elk River City Council agreed Jan. 9 to advertise for bids on the project. If all goes as planned, bids would be awarded Feb. 21 with construction running from April to November of this year.
Renovation of the existing public works building would then occur from December 2012 to January 2013.
The centerpiece of the project is a 68,000-square-foot addition to the public works facility located at 19000 Proctor Rd.
Total project cost is estimated at $9.6 million.
