Bids rejected for second time: Washington on hold

Email News Alerts

Last month, Becker County and the City of Detroit Lakes rejected the bids for reconstruction of the downtown portion of Washington Avenue and rebid the project, hoping for lower costs. Bids instead increased about 10 percent, and were rejected again.


The project will be rebid again this winter, when construction companies are more eager for projects and will likely provide a lower bid, and will be completed next spring.
