Trussville-based Bob Smith Construction was revealed Wednesday morning as the low bidder for the culvert replacement project on Green Drive.
Seven companies bid for the project.
Bob Smith Construction had a base bid of $379,000 with a deduct of $30,000.
The next-closest bid was Veterans Landscaping, which had a base bid of $383,604 but included an add of $43,397. Milam and Company bid $384,689 with a deduct of $266.67, and Abramson LLC bid $385,000.
The other three bids totaled $421,675 with an add of $10,000, $432,119.60 and $434,000 with an $18,000 deduct.
Trussville Streets and Sanitation Superintendent Wayne Sullivan said the bids will be tabulated and the low bidder officially notified.
Sullivan said last month that replacing and repairing culverts on Green Drive will take about two months. Mayor Gene Melton estimated that the work will be complete by late October or mid November.
One of the culverts collapsed in May.
The Trussville City Council approved Schoel Engineering doing the engineering for the Green Drive repair at a cost of $30,600 earlier this year.
Green Drive remains closed from Norrell Drive to Trussville-Clay Road. The closed road is a popular link from Chalkville Mountain Road to Trussville-Clay Road, on which Hewitt-Trussville Middle School is located.
