HUMBOLDT — BG Consultants will recommend how Humboldt should improve 340 blocks of chip-and-seal streets, many showing decay from having gone years without improvements.

At Monday’s city council meeting, City Administrator Cole Herder said BG, with offices in Manhattan, Emporia and Lawrence, had the most attractive bid for examination of city streets. He asked better than 20 firms to bid the work, of which a handful responded.  

Herder said estimates for chip-and-seal are $2 million; asphalt overlay $7 million, and replacement of streets with concrete $10 million.
