The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has awarded one of the two remaining construction contracts for the C-111 South Dade project, an Everglades restoration project in Miami-Dade County, Fla.

The $4 million construction contract was awarded to Carter’s Contracting Service, Inc., from Andalusia, Alabama, yesterday.

The contract, known as Contract 8A, involves constructing internal flow-way berms with weirs and making modifications to infrastructure that will help connect the C-111 South Dade project to the Modified Water Deliveries to Everglades National Park (Mod Waters) project.

“The construction activities for Contract 8A will complement the ongoing construction work on the project’s northern detention area, which broke ground earlier this year,” said Michael Drog, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District Project Manager.

“With the award of this construction contract, we are moving closer towards completing the construction on critical infrastructure that will enable us to have more operational flexibility in the southern portion of the system.”

The C-111 South Dade project will enable additional water flow into Everglades National Park and Florida Bay by restoring natural hydrologic conditions in Taylor Slough and the eastern panhandle of Everglades National Park.

The project will also preserve the current level of flood protection for agricultural lands in South Dade County.

Once completed, the project will work in concert with the infrastructure constructed as part of the Mod Waters project and will create a hydraulic ridge that will help prevent ground water from seeping out of Everglades National Park.
