Bids were opened yesterday (October 14) for the bikepath that will run from Brighton Street in Belmont through Alewife station to Somerville.
The bids came in below engineering estimates which means that the project will continue to move forward. There is a process of bid validation which needs to happen, but the project seems to be moving forward well. Construction may start this winter, perhaps at the bridge crossing the little stream segment from the CSO outlet near the station. The contractor will have discretion as to how much work to attempt during the winter.
