An $824,764 contract for the next phase of improvements for the ring levee surrounding the northern California town of Marysville was awarded to Patterson Taber General Engineering, Inc. of Marysville, California on August 26, 2016.
Expected to begin later this year, the next phase of construction is located within the Union Pacific Railroad track diamond at Binney Junction on the north side of Marysville and involves construction of about 500 feet of stability berm.
Two previous construction phases strengthened portions of the ring levee on the northeastern side of the city.
The ring levee project is a partnership between the Sacramento District, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Marysville Levee District.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental restoration and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight western states, including California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming.
