Construction crew tapped for Whiteville stormwater improvements
Frank Horne Construction will be the contractor for Phase One of continuing stormwater improvements for Whiteville.
Engineering Services, which is planning and designing the work, reviewed three bids for a number of critical stormwater infrastructure projects designed to alleviate some flooding in the city.
The project bid came in at $322,835, around $12,275 over the available $310,560 in Golden LEAF funding.
The city is seeking additional funding sources for the balance. Horne was chosen over T&H Construction and Axel McPherson based on the lower bid and the firm’s familiarity with the city.
