Only One Contract Remains for the Kissimmee River Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District recently awarded one of two remaining construction contracts for the Kissimmee River Restoration Project, a massive Everglades restoration project in Polk and Osceola counties.

The $4,837,000 C-37 Embankment Armoring construction contract was awarded to Herve Cody Contractor from Robbinsville, North Carolina.

The contract involves placing one-mile of turf reinforcement mat system and approximately 1.7 miles of riprap along the eastern canal of the Kissimmee River.

According to the Corps, construction is scheduled to begin this fall and will take approximately 18 months to complete. During this time, there will be a no wake zone between Lake Hatchinehea and Lake Kissimmee. Additionally, navigation in the C-38 Canal will be prohibited between S-65A and S-65D, north of the US Hwy 98 Bridge. Navigation south of the construction site will be available via the S-65D Boat Ramp.

We are in the final stretch of construction for the Kissimmee River Restoration project,” said Tiphanie J. Mattis, the Corps Jacksonville District project manager. “We are working to put the final components in place for this project in order to provide significant benefits to the Kissimmee River Basin, Lake Okeechobee, and subsequently, the entire Everglades ecosystem.

To date, the Corps has completed over 30 construction contracts as part of the Kissimmee River Restoration project. With the award of the C-37 Embankment Armoring contract, only one construction contract remains for the project.
