WEST PARIS – The newest phase of the Main Street rebuilding project is under way on the sidewalk between the Bradeen residence and Kingsbury Street, a short section that will be reclaimed and repaved later this summer.

Town Manager Donald Woodbury said the project will involve grinding the old pavement, placing new subsurface gravel, improving drainage, building a new sidewalk and re-sloping a sharp corner to address safety concerns.

The project follows two phases completed in 2001 and 2004, which rebuilt sections of Main Street from the railroad to the Bradeen residence and from Kingsbury Street to Pioneer Street.

Selectmen awarded a contract for grinding and paving to Pike Industries last Thursday accepting the company’s bid of $125,835.

Pike’s bid was the higher of two bids but a $103,131 bid by Rampart Paving did not include all the specifications the town sought.

The project is slated to be completed in late August or early September.
