McPherson City Commission Approves Change Order for Mill and Overlay Projects

By Lucky Kidd, Ad Astra Radio

McPherson – A $166,112 change order on this year’s mill and overlay projects was approved by the McPherson City Commission Tuesday. After Pearson Construction completed milling of Euclid east of Maxwell and Myers north of Hulse, the roadway fell apart and required extensive patching.

This involved the city providing crushed concrete and some of the hauling to keep costs down as much as possible and included over 2800 square yards of material along with a four-inch layer of asphalt. The cost did come in less than earlier expected.

The overlay work on Euclid is done, with Myers set to be completed this week.

The Commission also approved the inspection contract with Earles Engineering for the North Front Street Inspection… while an authorization of just under $107,000 was approved, the actual expense may come in quite a bit less than that.
