MORGAN CITY, La. (AP) - The first phase on construction of an industrial park at the West St. Mary Port may cost substantially less than earlier estimates.

Port executive director David Allain tells The Daily Review (https://bit.ly/1swkLkA ) bids were opened last week for work at the industrial park site on the Charenton Navigation and Drainage Canal.

The project calls for digging a slip and construction of a roadway.

Reid Miller of Miller Engineers and Associates says that of five bids, the low proposal was $1.3 million, about $700,000 below estimates.

He says the bid is getting further scrutiny.

If there is money left over from the original allocation for the project, port officials say other items previously cut from the project outline might be restored.
