Delaware Transportation officials are finding the cost of road construction going up.
That’s according to the Wilmington News Journal.
The paper reports that with a flood of new projects only a few construction companies are bidding on them.
One case is a contract for U.S. Route 301 tollway where Greggo and Ferrara bid on a toll collection facility.
It would connect the Maryland Eastern Shore with Delaware Route 1.
The paper reports that the company bid was $7.9 million for a contact that the state engineer said would cost $4.5 million.
