USA: Corps Awards Plaquemines Parish Levee Improvement Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, recently awarded a contract to construct a levee to replace an existing levee in Plaquemines Parish from Augusta to Cedar Grove.

The project is a part of the Resilient Features Westbank and Vicinity (WBV), Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System (HSDRRS).

It provides risk reduction from riverine flood events and from a hurricane event that has a 1% chance of occurring each year.

The $7,954,440 contract awarded to Tikigaq Construction, LLC was awarded on March 14, 2014 and expected completion date is in May 2015.

The project starts near the end of Augusta, near Sewer Plant Road, and continues approximately one-half mile to Cedar Grove, near Clausen Road.

The average elevation of the floodwalls and levees along the WBV-MRL will range from 22.5 feet to 24.5 feet.

The West Bank & Vicinity (WBV) project is defined as the risk reduction features on the west bank of the Mississippi River in St. Charles, Jefferson, Orleans and Plaquemines parishes.

Construction of the West Bank & Vicinity project starts at the Mississippi River Levee in Ama in St. Charles Parish and ends at the Mississippi River levee in Oakville in Plaquemines Parish.

The Corps continues to work closely with its partners in Plaquemines Parish government on the construction of risk reduction projects in the parish.
