Patrick Construction is to rebuild Fremont County, Wyo.'s Green Mountain campground. The Lander-based company entered the lowest bid for the project at $207,000, the Riverton Ranger reported.

Two other companies entered higher bids, and the recreation board opened bids Feb. 13.

The rec board is funding the project from a $250,000 loan from the county, to be repaid over several years.

The estimated construction cost plus the fee for DOWL HKM to design the project total about $234,000.

"We'd like to reserve the extra cash," said Cade Maestas, recreation board chairman.

The $207,000 would only cover grading work to construct 10 pull-through recreational vehicle sites and six tent sites on the north loop of the county's 41-acre property in southeastern Fremont County. It would also build a level site for a group shelter, but construction of the structure itself, however, would wait.

DOWL HKM engineer Jessica Klein expects the construction to be finished in mid-September, she said.

The rec board plans to add additional features for the campground in the future.
