Kososing Construction of Cheboygan, Michigan, has won a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District’s $5.9 million contract to repair a damaged portion of the Cleveland Harbor West Breakwater in Cleveland, Ohio.
According to USACE, the contractor is anticipated to begin work during fall 2019, which will include construction of steel sheet pile walls and repairs to the concrete cap.
“Buffalo District is proud to be able to contribute to the safety of the Cleveland Harbor through this repair of the west breakwater,” said Lt. Col. Jason Toth, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District commander.
“We are thankful for all of the advocacy and support we receive from Senator Sherrod Brown, Senator Rob Portman, and Congresswoman Marcia Fudge to continue assisting with these projects and taking care of the American people.”
This construction effort will help protect a piece of infrastructure vital to commercial navigation and commerce within the greater Cleveland area, said USACE in its release.
