A construction bid for a key trail that would connect Cleveland Park to Greenville's Laurens Road pedestrian bridge and a Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail extension has come in nearly $1 million over budget, calling into question how the city will pay for the project in a race against the clock: 


Take some of those tower funds and finish the trail extension.

I can’t read the article but doesn’t the fact that they issued an intent to award mean they have a plan to source the additional funds?

Essentially, they only had 1 company submit a bid by the deadline. The city wants to make it work with this firm instead of going through the extensive process of rebidding the work.

They are working with this company on ways to reduce cost. This exercise is typically called Value Engineering and not something all that unusual to run into during bidding.

The bigger issue is the fact that they only got 1 bid, because then you don't know if that bid is truly a reasonable starting spot
