A bid was accepted to build a new sewer line extension on the northern end of Locust Grove.

Locust Grove council accepts $1.25M sewer extension bid

The Locust Grove City Council voted at its April 1 regular meeting to accept a $1,256,055 bid on a sewer extension between Bill Gardner Parkway and the Market Place at Locust Grove development area.

Called the Market Place Line F Extension, it will extend sanitary sewer to areas farther north of the northern I-75 interchange area for development and offer relief in certain areas from existing aging lines around the same area from being overloaded, according to city officials. Pricing was above original estimates, but officials said that would not likely get any better in the future. The contract was awarded to Myles Plumbing and Utility Contractors Inc.

The vote was unanimous.
