Final construction plans for rebuilding Bell Street from Rio Concho Drive to Harris Avenue are complete. A request for bids has been advertised. Bids will be opened Thursday, Aug. 3. Construction is expected to begin in November.
Bell Street will be rebuilt from Rio Concho Drive to Old Ballinger Highway in three stages. The first phase will take about 18 months.
Bell Street is the second project in a 10-year, $80 million plan to rebuild San Angelo’s worst streets. The first project, on Martin Luther King Boulevard, is halfway to completion. MLK was tabbed as the first project to make use of a federal grant.
