Kannapolis soliciting contractors for downtown construction

KANNAPOLIS — City government is soliciting contractors for its West Avenue streetscape and infrastructure project.

The multimillion-dollar project will be part of the downtown revitalization plans. The firm Barton Marlow will oversee construction, scheduled to begin in early 2018.

Contractors interested in participating in the project are invited to a meeting from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Aug. 22 at Kannapolis City Hall. Also invited to the meeting are tradespeople experienced in infrastructure utilities, asphalt paving, site demolition, curb and gutter, concrete, unit masonry, water features, hardscape pavers, electrical systems, low-voltage systems, landscaping and irrigation, carpentry, miscellaneous metals and general trades.

Minority- and women-owned businesses are encouraged to participate.

The streetscape and infrastructure project will involve streets, but it will also require the replacement or construction of water and sewer lines, natural gas lines, electric lines, stormwater drains, wi-fi and other technologies.

Sign up for the meeting by Aug. 17 using the link bit.ly/2uqeNw8.
