New Bids Needed for Railyard Project
Next Tuesday City officials will ask the Sacramento City Council to reject five bids made for moving the railyard tracks to the north. The City had hoped to see work start this month, but all five construction bids came in higher than the $45 million the city has budgeted for the project. The three lowest bids were in the $57 million range.
The Sac Bee also reported that next Tuesday the council will be asking to proceed with a $4.5 million contract for a new bridge to extend Sixth Street north into the railyard from downtown.
