NYSSA — Construction on the Treasure Valley Reload Facility could begin as soon as the middle of September.
During a phone board meeting on Tuesday morning, project manager Brad Baird said the project will be advertised for bids over the next couple of weeks, with a pre-bid tour of the site north of Nyssa in early August.
Bids will be due Aug. 12, after which the Malheur County Development Corporation Board will award a contract. Once the contract is awarded, there will be a 7-day protest period. Barring any protest, the selected contractor has 15 days to sign the contracts, and the goal is to start ground work before Sept. 15.
