Corps awards contract for repairs at 185.3-MW Fort Peck

DRL Corporation of Oxford, Mass., has been awarded a contract work US$1.693 million for emergency road and drain repairs at the 185.3-MW Fort Peck hydropower plant in Montana.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Omaha District most recently solicited bids for the work in June, which includes repairs to emergency spillway access roads and flood control structure roads and drains.

The work also includes the removal and disposal of existing roadway material and replacement with new base course and asphalt pavement.

Other work includes removal and replacement of roadway drainage systems and excavation and repair of 76 spillway vent pipes that support the emergency spillway subdrain system.

The repairs come following 2011 flood damage in the Missouri River Basin, which caused more than $225 million in damages to Fort Peck and other facilities in the Omaha, Galveston and Walla Walla districts.
