Victoria has have given proponents bidding on construction of the Johnson Street bridge replacement another 48 hours to finalize their proposals.
The extension was in response to a request for additional time for the proponents: PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc.; Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (Kiewit); and WCC Construction Canada, ULC (Walsh). The proposals must now be submitted by Thursday at 4 p.m.
Once the proposals are received, staff will begin the evaluation process, which may take several weeks.
Following that, the evaluation committee will recommend to council the selection of the preferred proponent. Once selected, the preferred proponent and the city will negotiate a contract for the construction of the new bridge.
