Bids for Stone Avenue renovations come back over budget
LA GRANGE — The La Grange Board of Trustees will vote Monday whether to reject six bids for the Stone Avenue Train Station renovation project as all bids came back significantly higher than the architect’s estimate.
La Grange has been working with Metra, West Suburban Mass Transit District, BNSF and other state and federal agencies to secure funding and approval for renovations to the historic Stone Avenue Train Station.
The village secured $385,000 in grant funding from the West Suburban Mass Transit District and $700,000 in federal funding through U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-3rd Dist., Western Springs, for interior and exterior renovations.
The architect’s construction estimate for the project was $875,035.
The lowest base bid the village received was $1.03 million, with the highest at $1.3 million.
