The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, announced recently that the repairs of damaged embankment and levee toe within the Glendale Narrows section of the Los Angeles River Flood Control Channel at Reach 4D have been completed ahead of schedule.

According to the Corps, JF Engineering completed the repairs of the critical levee structure in late September.

Ahead of schedule, and with no contract modifications, the critical levee repairs were a success, taking only about 3 months of construction to complete the repair,” reported USACE.

The Corps also added that the levee’s grouted stone toe has been restored to original line and grade. “The levees are ready to handle the flows of the 2017 to 2018 storm season.

JF Engineering began work on this project in the summer of 2017 and managed to complete the levee repairs well ahead of the October 15 flood season deadline.
