Work starts next month and is expected to take a year in a widening project on Betsy Lane in Murphy between N. Murphy Rd. and McCreary Rd.

Murphy city council members accepted the low bid of $2.97 million from Tiseo Paving of Dallas earlier this month. The city received eight bids for the project.

The winning bid from Tiseo includes an alternate to furnish and install median irrigation.

Other bids, with the alternate included, were McMahon Contracting of Grand Prairie, $3.031 million; Ed Bell Construction Company of Dallas, $3.095 million; L.H. Lacy Company of Dallas, $3.115 million; Pavecon Public Works of Grand Prairie, $3.175 million; Rebcon, Inc., of Dallas, $3.5 million; CD Builders of Hurst, $3.99 million; and Lone Star Civil Construction of Flower Mound, $4.25 million.

As part of the work, a bridge at Maxwell Creek will be built at a cost of $679,284.

The project is to widen the stretch of Betsy Road from its current two lanes to a divided four lanes of 9-inch concrete paving.

Funding is made up of $2.6 million from surplus Regional Toll Revenue from the 121 Toll Road and a local match of $591,000 from Collin County, providing a total of $3.19 million for the job.

The job had been estimated at $3.2 million including engineering, right-of-way and construction.
