The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractors plan to begin work Saturday, September 15, to rehabilitate flood-damaged areas of the Heise-Roberts Levee System, located near Rigby, Idaho, on the upper Snake River between Jefferson and Madison counties. 

The levee was damaged in multiple locations by sustained high flows during the 2017 and 2018 flood seasons.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District awarded a contract on June 29, 2018, to S.E.A. Construction LLC, a small business from Raymond, Washington, for approximately $1.79 million to repair the levee.

“We are looking forward to completion of these vital repairs and appreciate the support of our federal partners,” said Jefferson County Emergency Manager Rebecca Squires.

While the work is underway, residents may expect an increase in heavy truck traffic. We encourage motorists to give these trucks plenty of space on the road, understanding that they don’t speed up or slow down quickly.” 

The rehabilitation project will require about six weeks to complete.
