$35 Million Contract for Ruston Sports Complex Approved

Womack & Sons, a Harrisonburg, LA construction company, was awarded a $35.2 million contract for the construction of the new sports complex on South Farmerville Street.

Ruston’s Board of Aldermen approved the action at last night’s regular monthly meeting.

Public Works Director Darrell Caraway told the board that five bids were received, and that the project was expected to take 425 working days.

Yeager, Watson & Associates is the project architect.

The council also approved an ordinance creating the Cooktown Road Economic Development District, a 15 1/2 acre area that is to be commercially developed. It is located at the northwest corner of Cooktown Road and the I-20 North Service Road (Woodward Avenue).

Asked during the public hearing what kind of public infrastructure improvements are planned, Mayor Ronny Walker said that street and sewage improvements are contemplated. The existing sewage lift station will be upgraded to handle the commercial development, Walker noted.

Finally, several sewer improvement projects were approved, which will allow the streets to be repaved afterward. Listed were: University, Western, Georgia, Maryland, Monroe, Lee, Arlington, and Second.
