Bids much lower than expected for Deer Park project

(Port Angeles) -- Clallam County officials are reviewing five bids for project to build an underpass at Highway 101 and Deer Park Road.
The bids were opened yesterday, and they all came in lower than engineers had estimated.
The lowest bid came from the Kent company that is currently widening Highway 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim, Scarsella Brothers.
Port Angeles' Bruch & Bruch Construction had the second lowest bid, while Carlsborg's Primo Construction was third lowest.
County staff will look over the bid packages. A formal award for the project could come in the next couple of weeks.
Engineers estimated the project would cost seven million dollars. But the lowest bids all come in around five million.
When finished next year, traffic will no longer use a stop sign as the Deer Park Road intersection to the Highway. Instead, the road will go under the highway. The current turn lanes will be removed.
