The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, awarded an $183,000 construction contract to repair the damages to the Pierce – North Branch Elkhorn River Right Bank levee system Wednesday.

The Pierce levee system, damaged by the 2019 spring flooding, is approximately 2.5 miles long, running along the northern and western boundary of the City of Pierce, Nebraska.

According to USACE, this system provides an increased level of flood risk management for over 550 structures and approximately 1,100 people.

“This is the first of full rehabilitation projects to begin addressing damages to the smaller tributary systems throughout the Omaha District Area of Responsibility that were damaged during the 2019 spring flooding,” said Jeff Bohlken, Program Manager for the Omaha District Systems Restoration Team.

“However, we are anticipating that we will have 5-10 more of the tributary projects ready for award within the next two months to continue these repair efforts.”

The contract was awarded to Niewohner Construction of Onawa, Iowa, and the period of performance for the contact is 60 calendar days.

The repairs will restore the levee system to its pre-flood condition.
