Water lines will be replaced on streets in northeast Chino and along Central Avenue between Chino and Schaefer avenues beginning in late January, with completion expected in mid-July, according to Deputy City Manager Vivian Castro.

The Chino City Council at its Nov. 5 meeting approved spending up to $3.2 million for the two water line projects at its Nov. 5 meeting.

Existing water lines will be replaced on Cypress Avenue, Lemon Place, Lime Place, Orange Avenue, Aster Court, Williamsburg Road/Arlington Place, and Marshall Avenue.

Water line improvements will be made in the Central Avenue project.

Big Ben, Inc. of Irvine won the project’s contract with a low bid of nearly $2.4 million. Eighteen companies bid for the work. The highest bid was for $4.3 million.

City staff added $239,480 for construction management costs, $119,470 for inspection costs, $239,480 for project contingencies and $119,470 for construction engineering, bringing the total cost to $3.2 million.
