Cowley County commissioners Tuesday will consider a $500,000 project to resurface a well-traveled rural road.
Commissioners are set to review the only bid received for a surfacing project on nine miles of county highway. That bid is for seven miles of 112th Rd. west of Burden and two miles of 141st Rd. north from Murks Corner convenience store to the south edge of Winfield City Lake dam.
County staff is recommending approval of an agreement with Dustrol Inc. of Towanda in the amount of $490,134.
This stretch of road is well traveled and has had issues in the past, according to information provided to commissioners.
The county spent just over $175,000 in 2011 on a slurry seal job that did not hold up as well as was hoped. A traditional two-inch asphalt overlay would cost over $1 million, officials said, but the use of a recycling process will cut the cost in half.
This is a budgeted project and money will come from the special highway improvement fund.
The meeting Tuesday is set for 9 a.m. in the First-Floor assembly room.
