Charlestown Rt 12 Repair Update … November 5, 2021

Charlestown Rt 12 Repair Update … November 5, 2021

Dear Elected Officials for Charlestown, Walpole and Claremont:

The big news is that the project will advertise today, Friday, November 5, 2021 and the bids will be opened on November 18, 2021.  The “Invitation for Bids” document is attached for your reference. 

The Department had planned to provide a one week bid period.  However, following the informational meeting with potential pre-qualified contractors, modifications were made to the project and the project start was delayed, resulting in different weather conditions from the outset.  Also, holidays are approaching,  Therefore, it is only fair to provide the contractors with two weeks to encompass the change in plans and weather before submitting bids (thus the advertising on 11/5 and the bid opening on 11/18).  

The Department plans to request pre-authorization from Governor & Council for a project dollar amount at the G&C meeting on November 22, 2021.  Then the Department will go back to G&C for approval of the contract award to the selected contractor.  

My Best,


Kathleen Mulcahey-Hampson

Legislative Liaison
