The New­ton County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers ap­proved a bid for con­struc­tion ser­vices for the re­place­ment of the Hightower Road bridge over Gum Creek at their Tues­day night meet­ing.

The board ap­proved the $937,755 bid of Cline Ser­vice Cor­po­ra­tion. The ac­tual low­est bid­der, Hit­son Con­struc­tion Com­pany, was dis- qual­i­fied from bid­ding as the com­pany was not Ge­or­gia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion pre-qual­i­fied.

The BOC also ap­proved a de­liv­ery ser­vice strat­egy agree­ment with Cov­ing­ton, Ox­ford and Por­terdale. The agree­ment cov­ers no new changes to pre­vi­ous ser­vice de­liv­ery agree­ments with the three mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

The BOC will meet next on Mar. 18 at 7 p.m. at the His­toric Court­house.
