RLB Contracting Nets Shoreline Protection Deal

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District has awarded a $2.2 million contract to RLB Contracting Inc. for placement of rip rap and articulating concrete block in order to minimize erosion of the existing Pelican Island Placement Area containment dikes in Galveston County, Texas.

The Pelican Island Placement Area receives dredged material from the Galveston Harbor project which helps to maintain navigation for the Port of Galveston and industries along the channel,” said Tricia Campbell, an operations manager with the USACE Galveston District’s Navigation Branch. “Shoreline Protection will ensure that the placement area’s containment dikes do not experience further erosion which could render the site unusable.”

Work is expected to begin October 2015 with an anticipated completion date of May 2016.

The USACE Galveston District was established in 1880 as the first engineer district in Texas to oversee river and harbor improvements. The district is directly responsible for maintaining more than 1,000 miles of channel, including 270 miles of deep draft and 750 miles of shallow draft as well as the Colorado River Locks and Brazos River Floodgates.
