Levee Improvements

 

The Army Corps of Engineers will be replacing the Central Place and the Birdland levees.  The new levees will provide improved, higher-level protection with increased height and enhanced structural integrity. 

Construction on both levees will be performed in such a manner that the contractor will be able to provide interim flood protection in the event of high river levels.

 

Birdland Levee Improvements

 

The design has been completed on the Birdland levee and a construction contract has been awarded.  Construction is expected to take 770 calendar days, weather permitting. 

 

Central Place Levee Improvements

 

The Central Place levee is in final design review and once it is finalized will be released for bidding.  Construction time is expected to be 550 days, weather permitting.
