Crestline, CA – The Lake Gregory Dam Improvement Project took a major step forward Tuesday , February 13, 2018, as the Board of Supervisors unanimously awarded the project contract to RockForce Construction.
A public groundbreaking ceremony will be scheduled to mark the beginning of construction. Work will continue for approximately one year and project completion is expected in the first quarter of 2019.
“This is a big step forward for Lake Gregory and for the Crestline Community,” Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford said. “We will work closely with the contractor to ensure residents are updated on the progress of the rehabilitation work and to minimize impacts to the community.”
Of the four bids submitted for the project, RockForce presented the lowest qualified bid of $11.3 million. The contractor understands the importance of the project to the community and is eager to begin work, while being engaged with the community through project completion.
During construction, all recreational activities will continue at Lake Gregory, including year-round fishing and swimming in the summer.
