Laurel awards $3.8M bid for sportsplex expansion project

LAUREL, Miss. (WDAM) - The City of Laurel has awarded a bid for Phase I of the Laurel Sportsplex expansion project.

Out of five bids received, Larry J. Sumrall Contractors, Inc. submitted the lowest bid of $3,828,338.00.

“It’s been probably 16 years since we’ve been working trying to get to this point,” Laurel Mayor Johnny Magee said. “We awarded the contract to a local firm and we’re getting ready to get started. We have the World Series next year in July and we’re hoping this project will be finished by the World Series.”
