  • $27 million contract awarded to repair Missouri River navigation structures

    Midwest Construction Company, of Nebraska City, Nebraska, was awarded a contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to make repairs to river training structures on the Missouri River. The $27 million for the repair work comes from the BIL – Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation – and is expected to be the first of several separate contracts awarded in the next 12 months to support navigation on the Missouri River. Kansas City District contracting officer, Dave Best, signed the task order award on Aug. 11 as Col. Travis Rayfield, commander of the Kansas City District and several others from the project delivery team looked on yesterday.
  • Progress continues on damaged Lower Missouri River Navigation Channel

    The Kansas City District is currently performing multiple tasks to address priority areas of concern and the damages to river structures that have accumulated during the nearly three years of high water. The district is using all available resources to include a combination of contractors, including one for emergency dredging, and our in-house floating plant to repair flood damaged structures and improve channel conditions.
