The second phase of the Iowa Great Lakes Trail proceeded past one of its final barriers to completion after the Spencer City Council held a roll call vote to award the contract for the project. Howrey Construction, of Rockwell City, was ultimately awarded the contract.

“The bids were good news,” said Jeff Schug, transportation team leader with McClure Engineering. “We had four bids ranging between $1,692,190.75 and $2,095,000. Our engineer’s estimate was $2,088,000.

“The low bid by Howrey Construction was $1,692,190.75. So, $395,000 under our engineer’s estimate or about 19 percent under our estimate. Howrey is the contractor we were hoping was going to get the project so we were very pleased with the results.”
