The city of Longview is accepting bids from contractors for the final two phases of the Guthrie Trail, said Parks and Recreation Director Scott Caron. Bids will be opened later this month, and work is expected to take between 14 and 18 months depending on weather, he said.
“We have a prebid meeting with (the Texas Department of Transportation) in two weeks,” he said this past week.
Phase 1 of Guthrie Trail — from Fourth Street to Delwood Drive — officially opened in August, though work continues where Phase 1 meets the Akin Trail.
The trail is among several projects either planned or under construction within the Parks and Recreation Department.
LPA Design Studios, a firm hired by the city to prepare designs and construction documents, will lead the meeting.
