Thousand Islands Bridge Authority to Reject Sole Bid for Toll System Upgrades

Watertown Daily Times reports, “The Thousand Islands Bridge Authority is reconsidering its options after the sole bid for upgrades to its toll system came in millions of dollars over budget. ‘We were disappointed there was only one proposal, and certainly so far over budget it was pretty easy to make the decision the proposal was unacceptable,’ said Robert G. Horr III, executive director of the Thousand Island Bridge Authority.” He tells the newspaper that the authority and its consultant are soliciting feedback from the vendor community to determine why the RFP did not elicit more response and that closer to the anticipated project budget.
