Three firms bid on Cecil Commerce Center Mega-Site Entrance Road project
The city accepted bids Wednesday from three firms to provide design-build services for the Cecil Commerce Center Mega-Site Entrance Road project.
The three applicants were Jacksonville-based Petticoat-Schmitt Civil Contractors Inc., Jacksonville-based J.B. Coxwell Contracting Inc. and R.B. Baker Construction Inc. with offices in Georgia and St. Augustine.
The design includes space for two future additional lanes on the west side of the right-of-way to support growth.
The road will extend from New World Avenue north to the 600-acre mega-site.
The city will review the bids.
The mega-site is property designated for large industrial development. While the property is 600 acres gross, the city says the “prime 400-acre tract of land” is valued at $40 million, about $100,000 an acre, and is not accessible by vehicle.
