PENNDOT OPENS BIDS TO COMPLETE INDIANA BYPASS

 HARRISBURG, Pa., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today received an apparent low bid of nearly $20 million to begin the second and final construction phase of the Indiana Bypass on U.S. Route 422.
 Mashuda Corp. of Evans City, Butler County, submitted the bid of $19,983,312 to build the final 3.1-mile section of the four-lane highway from State Route 286 to the existing U.S. Route 422 at Parkwood Road.
 "I'm delighted that we are providing the highway that will open new roads of opportunity in Indiana County as well as allow safer, more efficient traffic flow," said PennDOT Secretary Howard Yerusalim.
 Yerusalim noted that Gov. Robert P. Casey promised during his 1986 campaign that he would ensure the bypass was built, linking Indiana County's so-called "bridge to nowhere" with the rest of Route 422.
 The project is part of the governor's "Operation Jump Start" to accelerate needed public works projects to provide jobs for state residents and stimulate the economy.
 PennDOT expects to put $1 billion in highway and bridge construction under contract this fiscal year.
 Casey broke ground in June 1992 for the first phase of the bypass, a 2.9-mile section between State Route 119 and Route 286. The first section, costing $26.3 million, is expected to open to traffic in late 1994.
 The second phase, which will get underway later this summer, is expected to be completed in mid 1995.
 PennDOT must ensure that the apparent low bid meets technical and legal requirements before awarding a contract.
