CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A judge says the state properly awarded a $3 million contract for a security project at the Capitol Complex.

Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Joanna Tabit’s decision came in a lawsuit filed by McClanahan Construction of Poca.

Tabit’s order says McClanahan admitted that it couldn’t comply with a 120-day deadline to compete the project.

McClanahan was the low bidder for the contract but was disqualified for submitting a nonconforming bid. The state awarded the contract to the second-lowest bidder, Wiseman Construction of Charleston.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1OsIdeO ) reports that Tabit issued her ruling last week.



The state plans to install a fence surrounding the Governor’s Mansion and convert two parking lots adjacent to the Culture Center into a bus turnaround.
