The work set to be done with Vincennes’ Community Crossings Matching Grant funds will be completed by E&B Paving.
This comes after a recommendation from City Engineer John Sprague, who reviewed all submitted bids and deemed the one from E&B as the most cost effective.
The city had originally applied for $1.6 million in state funding, which would go towards several side streets which are in need of re-paving. When awards were announced, the city didn’t quite receive as much money as they had hoped, only being awarded $433,500. The largest of those projects is Shelby Street from 2nd to 15th streets. The plan also calls for new street curbing as well.
The decision to award the project to E&B was unanimous by the Board of Works.
