ADAMS, Mass. — Four companies placed bids on the first phase of infrastructure work at the Greylock Glen.

The town has an estimated $4.3 million worth of infrastructure improvements planned. The project received a kickstart of a $2 million allocation from the state's supplemental budget bill and town officials scaled the project into phases.

The first phase will include excavation, paving, water, sewer, electrical and gas improvements and drainage on Thiel and Gould roads.

The lowest bid was from Lanesborough-based D.R. Billings Inc. at $1,296,946. The second lowest bid was from  C & A Construction Co. Inc. at $1,640,065. J.H. Maxymillian Inc. bid $1,735,760 and Warner Bros. LLC bid $1,738,637.

The bid has not yet been awarded but the town and the contractor must be under contract by June with construction completed no later than mid-2013 to fulfill state requirements.

The construction work would be the first in more than a decade at the often controversial site. Several projects have been attempted and failed; the most recent incarnation is to build a campground, an amphitheater and conference center. Town officials hope that by improving the infrastructure they will be able to attract a private developer to bring the project to fruition.

The Department of Community Development is hoping to secure a state MassWorks grant to finish the remainder of the infrastructure phases.
