Why will this project cost so much, and take so long?

This project underwent a competitive bidding process as required by state law. It may seem a small project due to the length of road that will be involved, but here is the bid tab which lists the hundreds of components that will be done. The contract for this project was awarded to the low bidder.

We estimate it will take six to eight months from beginning to completion. Like everyone else, we also would like to see it finished sooner rather than later, so long as everything is done right--that is, and must be, our #1 priority.
