The Reservoir Street improvement project is one step closer from getting done.
The Harrisonburg city council approved a bid from a demolition company called Commonwealth Excavating on Tuesday.
According to Mayor Richard Baugh,they were one out of five companies that submitted a bid.
Baugh said they chose it in part because it had the lowest price.
Engineers estimated the project to be $350,000
The company asked for $146,000.
But the benefit of the project goes beyond the financial savings.
"This has been a project that I think most people have wanted to see us move forward on so that's the spirit in which we are doing this. Unfortunately if you're gonna widen the road and you don't own the property, you gotta acquire the property," Baugh said.
Some houses on Reservoir Street will have to be demolished before they start the project.
The city has not set a date for the demolition.
