Linn County receives four bids for Mill City bridge project

Four bids for the Cedar Creek Pedestrian Bridge Project in Mill City were opened at Tuesday’s meeting of the Linn County Board of Commissioners. 

Bids were submitted by: Farline Bridge, Stayton, $205,225; Legacy Contractors, Stayton, $228,856.50; Oregon State Bridge Construction, Stayton, $394,070.50; Cascade Civil Corp, Redmond, $402,374.

Tuesday’s bids will be evaluated to ensure they meet county requirements and brought back to the commissioners with an award recommendation at next Tuesday’s board meeting. 

The project will replace a small timber pedestrian bridge that was burned in the September 2020 wildfire. The original bridge was constructed to carry railroad traffic and was converted to a pedestrian bridge after the rail line was closed.  

Linn County is administering this FEMA funded project for the City of Mill City.

In other business, the commissioners:

• Approved the purchase of liquid asphalt emulsion for the county Road Department’s annual road chip sealing program from Western Emulsions. 

• Accepted land at no cost from the City of Millersburg for the Old Salem Road project. 

• Approved a sub-recipient agreement for the pass-through of $138,050 in federal funding to the Senior Citizens of Sweet Home (Linn Shuttle). 

• Approved the purchase of two 12′ X 60′ modular buildings for $317,222 through King County Directors Association Purchasing Cooperative to be placed at the Willamette Health Center. 

• Approved a contract with Samaritan Health Services to provide psychiatric services of eight hours per week for $6,453 per month.
