News in Photos: London Avenue PCCP

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the approximately $615 million contract to construct Permanent Canal Closures & Pumps (PCCP) at the mouths of the 17th Street, Orleans Avenue and London Avenue outfall canals on April 17, 2013 to PCCP Constructors JV.

The PCCP will provide a permanent and more sustainable measure for reducing the risk of a 100-year level storm surge entering the outfall canals.

The PCCP will replace the Interim Closure Structures, which were constructed in 2006.

Notice to proceed with the construction was issued on May 6 and the project will be complete in 44 months (2017).
