City commissioners tonight are set to award a $1.92 million bid to replace a century-old waterline in downtown Lawrence.
Nowak Construction Co. Inc., the company that has done the previous two phases of the waterline construction project, is the low bidder. Commissioners are scheduled to approve the bid as part of the consent agenda at their 6:35 p.m. meeting.
Work is expected to begin April 23. This year's project will run on both sides of Massachusetts Street from Ninth to North Park streets. The project, which will disrupt parking and limit traffic to one way on portions of Massachusetts Street, is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 7.
The bid for the project came in less than the $2.09 million that engineers had estimated.
