The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to post the call for bids to construct the Palo Parado Bridge at their regular meeting on January 18, 2012.  There will be 6 weeks for companies to respond to the request and an additional 2 to 4 weeks for staff to determine if the bid complies with the specifications in the bid document.

It is anticipated that the contract will be awarded by mid-April.  The road will be closed for 12 to 18 months for the construction, but the inconvenience will be rewarded by shorter commute times, reduced fuel use resulting in cost savings for drivers and a reduction in time, fuel and wages for the Santa Cruz Valley USD #35 school buses.  Students will also better spend their time doing homework or sports, rather than time on the bus.
