SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ A ground breaking for the proposed Wakefield comfort station may take place sometime this month.
Andrew Nota, South Kingstownâ€™s director of administrative services, said Wednesday that the Rhode Island Department of Transportation is in the final stages of singing a contract with New England Building and Bridge Co., Inc., for the $1.1 million project.
The project was open for bidding Aug. 8 and RIDOT, which is managing the project, received four bids. New England Building and Bridge was the lowest bidder.
Nota said RIDOT previously anticipated holding a ground breaking in the spring or fall, but there is a possibility that a ground breaking could occur within the next several weeks, depending on the weather.
