Manson/Connolly Seal Beach JV, Seattle, Washington, has won an $88.1 million firm-fixed-price contract for P-224 Causeway Boat Channel and Turning Basin and P-226 Ammunition Pier at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.

The contract also contains five unexercised options and one planned modification, which if exercised would increase the cumulative contract value to $154.7 million.

According to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), the work to be performed provides a public boat channel, naval ship channel and naval ship turning basin; ship mooring dolphins, excavation of above water moles, salvage and reuse of armor/riprap, paving, striping, signage, fencing, hauling and disposing of excess dredge material, placing fill for vehicle causeway and habitat enhancement; and constructing rock breakwater, rock armor shore protection, security structure and wharf improvements to support large deck amphibious ship ordnance operations.

The project also includes relocating naval barge mooring buoys, installing marine navigation aids, utility infrastructure upgrades and communication infrastructure and security improvements.

Work will be performed in Seal Beach, California, and is expected to be completed by June 2024.

As the DOD reported, fiscal 2019 military construction (Navy) funds for P-224 in the amount of $117,780,000 are obligated at the time of award, and the funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

They also added that when fiscal 2020 military construction (Navy) funds are available they will be obligated using one of the unexercised options for P-226.
