Minnesota officials select company to replace I-35 bridge

| 10/2/2007

The company chosen to rebuild the Interstate 35 bridge in Minneapolis submitted the costliest bid, and will take longer to rebuild it than most of its competitors.

But The Associated Press reports that state transportation officials say they chose Flatiron & Manson Construction because it had higher marks than other bidders on the technical score portion of the bidding process.

Flatiron & Manson’s bid was nearly $234 million, and completion of the project will take 15 months.
