Bid opening is April 5th, it can take between a week and a month to get all the contract and paper work approved. This contract allows 90 working days. Working days are counted as 5 days a week excluding holidays unless the Special Provisions require working 7 days a week which I doubt in this case because of the high costs of overtime. In this case 90 working days turns out to be 4 1/2 months, now throw in Memorial Day, 4th of July holiday and Labor Day as well as possible bad weather days your probably looking at 5 month after the contract is signed so in reality I wouldn't plan on using the road until about the first of October. I retired as a Superintendent/ Estimator in road and bridge construction so I know first hand how these projects work.
