FOR BIG BRIDGE
CONTRACTS FOR THE SAVANNAH
'RIVER STRUCTURE WILL BE
WORK IN SUMTER COUNT1
Durham Firm Will Build Four and
One-Half Miles of Hard-Surface
Contracts for the construction of
the Savannah river bridge near Sa
vannah will be signed within the next
few days, the state highway depart
ment announced, bids having been op
ened last week at Savannah.
When the bids were opened Olaf
Otto, of Savannah, was found to have
submitted the low figure on the build
ing of all the bridge work, substruc
ture and superstructures, with the ex
ception of the draw span. -1is figure
was $313,667.17, and while no award
has yet been made Mr. Otto will likely
get the contract, it is indicated. The
work bid upon by Mr. Otto is largely
concrete and the length of the trest
ling is about 5,669 feet.
A. J. Twiggs & Son, of Augusta, of
fered the low figure on the embank
mont and f111-in work, approximately
244,000 cubic yards. The Twiggs fig
tire was $165,422.94. In this bid Mr.
Twiggs agreed to care for all settle
ment of the fill-in due to the marshes
and highway authorities expect a cer
tain proportion of t'he embankment to
settle, causing extra work.
The entire project will be approxi
mately four and one-half miles in
length and the cost will come within
estimate of the Georgia and South
Carolina highway department, esti
mated by a narrow margin. Additional
contracts are to be made for the draw
span, estimated to cost $25,000 and the
wearing surface for entire project, es.
timated to cost $50,000. This will
bring the total cost to around $600,000,
the original estimate.
Jasper, Beaufort and Hampton coun
ties are to pay $150,000 towards the
building of the structure, South Caro
lina $150,000' through federal aid,'and
Georgia the other $300,000. The work
is expected to be completed in about
The highway department also an
nounced the award of a four and one
half mile hard surface contract in
Sumter county to C. D. Rigsbee, of
Durham, N. C., at $117,329.05. This
road completes the highway to Mayes
villo and will be asphaltic concrete.
