Florin Creek Works About to Start
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District recently awarded a $7.2 million contract to PRS Newland JV for improvements along Florin Creek in south Sacramento.
Construction will generally be between Highway 99 and Franklin Boulevard. The work includes relocating utilities, and widening and concrete-lining Florin Creek as well as installing flood walls.
“This is the last construction project for the South Sac Streams group,” said Corps project manager John Hoge. “We’ve successfully completed safety improvements at North Beach Lake levee and Morrison, Elder and Union House creeks, so the Florin Creek construction will complete this important program.”
The South Sacramento County Streams Group Project is a joint effort between the Corps, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency to reduce flood risk in the Sacramento basin.
Construction is slated to begin in August with completion scheduled for fall 2016.
