ADAMS, Mass. – After a rebid, The Park Street Improvement Project has received two bids again.

The project originally received bids April 10. However, because of a low amount of bidders the town decided to send the project out again in hope more contractors would be attracted to it.

Bids closed for a second time on Thursday with J.H. Maxymillian,of Pittsfield, and Jack Goncalves & Sons of Ludlow, as the two bidders.

J.H. Maxymillian offered $876,080 bid and Jack Goncalves & Sons offered a $901,808 bid. Both bids are over the $700,000 budget.

Town Administrator Jonathan Butler said at a prior Board of Selectmen’s meeting he believes that contractors are shying away from the project because of challenging conditions.

"They are very difficult projects to work through; there is high levels of traffic in downtown streets and there are dozens, if not hundreds of stakeholders, when you get into residents, business and other entities with property on the street,” Butler said.
