JUNEAU - Miller Construction Co. came up with the lowest bid to build a track and field at the new high school in the Mendenhall Valley, according to a city official.
The Juneau-based company's bid came at about $3.5 million for the project, which is due to start this summer, according to city contract specialist Janet Sanbei. The city estimated the project would cost about $3.7 million.
Arete Construction Co., also of Juneau, placed a bid of about $3.8 million.
The track and field will be part of Thunder Mountain High School, a $60 million new school that is due to open next school year.
The Juneau Assembly still has to approve the bid and is scheduled to review it Monday.
