GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Bids for the Highway 289 extension project were announced Thursday morning at the Grayson County Courthouse. Over 40 contractors received the engineers’ specifications for the highway project over the past month.
On Thursday, five bids were read turned in and read aloud.
County officials say they are pleased with the results of the bidding and are anxious to get construction started next month. Workers are scheduled to break ground on March 25.
"I think the challenge is going to be the timeline to try and get it done in 18 months, but the project is doable," TX-DOT area engineer Kevin Harris says.
The winning bid and contractor will be announced on Monday at commissioners’ court.
