QRI Nabs Houston Deal

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, has awarded a contract to Quaternary Resource Investigations (QRI) for geotechnical soil boring at the Rosa Allen Placement Area, located in Houston.

Once completed, the soil borings will be used in the design of an upcoming containment dike raising job in order to accommodate material from future dredging jobs along the Houston Ship Channel,” said Project Manager Tricia Campbell, USACE Galveston District.

According to Campbell, the contractor is required to conduct soil borings from within the site and determine the physical properties of the soil.

Work is scheduled to begin this month with an estimated completion date of May 2016.

The USACE Galveston 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.
