City gets bid on parking garage repairs

Work could start in May

ANDERSON – The city of Anderson has taken under advisement bids from three companies for planned repairs to the downtown Plaza Parking Garage.

The Anderson Board of Public Works received bids Tuesday and is awaiting a review by city engineer Mike Spyers. The work is expected to be completed by 2016 and will be phased in over three years.

M.K. Betts Engineering of Anderson submitted the lowest bid at $630,782. Glenroy Construction bid $733,755, and Structure Tec CSD Corp. submitted a bid of $657,782.

The downtown parking garage has not undergone a major rehabilitation since it opened in 1980, but the work is planned to begin this year. The five-story parking garage at the corner of Main and 11th streets is slated to receive major rehabilitation over the next three years.

The Anderson Redevelopment Commission expects to spend approximately $1 million on the rehabilitation work through 2016. Structural work will be done on the all concrete facility. Portions of the garage will remain open during the upgrades.

The Plaza Parking Garage has approximately 275 spaces. Work was done on the structure in 1994 when concrete ramps were sealed and waterproofed.

The board received one bid for mowing of the city-owned properties and along street right-of-way.

Select Lawn Services submitted a bid of $10,984 for mowing during each cycle and $15,365 per cycle for hand trimming and application of herbicides. A cycle is each time the mowing has to take place, dependent on weather conditions. The bid was referred to the city engineering department for review.
