The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, awarded a $10.3 million construction contract to repair the damages to the R-616-613 and R-613 levee systems earlier this week.

The R-616-613 and R-613 levee systems, damaged by the 2019 spring flooding, are approximately 19 miles long. The R-616-613 system starts on the Missouri River at Highway 370 and follows the river to the mouth of the Papillion Creek, then turning and going up the north bank of Papillion Creek to Capehart Road.

The R-613 levee system starts slightly downstream on the Papillion Creek following the south bank to the confluence with the Missouri River, then follows the Missouri River to the mouth of the Platte River and then goes up the North bank of the Platte River to Highway 75.

“The contract mechanism for this project is the Omaha District’s Rapid-Disaster-Infrastructure (RDI 1) Small Business MATOC (Multiple Award Task Order Contract),” said Bret Budd, Chief of the Omaha District Systems Restoration Team. “This cost-reimbursable contract tool is used for urgent infrastructure repair projects.”

The contract was awarded to the joint venture team of IE-Weston Federal Service JVB LLC of Pasco, Wash.

The period of performance for the contact is 90 calendar days, with a focus on getting the repair work finished so that the Papillion-Missouri River NRD can complete their previously approved Section 408 construction contract to raise the levee systems.
