Buildings to be demolished in preparation for 19th Avenue North project

CLINTON — Three structures are scheduled to be removed in the near future to make way for the city of Clinton’s 19th Avenue North project connecting the Iowa 136 bridge to Millcreek Parkway with a through road.

The Clinton City Council awarded a contract to Larry “Joe” Detterman Excavation, Inc. on Tuesday for the demolition of one structure at 707 19th Ave. North, one at 715 19th Ave. North and the third at 1830 N. Seventh St., for a lump-sum bid of $15,850.

Offering an opportunity for community input, the council first held a public hearing at Tuesday’s council meeting before accepting the bid and awarding the contract, but there was no opposition from those in attendance.

Before holding the public meeting, the city advertised the demolition project for open bids and received three on Nov. 27. Larry “Joe” Detterman Excavating’s bid came in nearly $8,400 less than the next lowest bid from BWC Excavating at $24,197.

With the acceptance of the bid from Detterman, the city engineering department may now move forward with the demolition project as soon as a contract and bond have been filed, the removal of asbestos has been completed and the contractor has filed notification forms with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
