Corps Awards Contract For Lock & Dam Repairs........


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District recently announced that they have awarded a $5.3 million contract to Kauyuh Services, LLC, of Anchorage, Alaska for repair work on the guidewalls at Locks and Dam Nos. 4 and 5A along the Mississippi River.


The guidewalls are long extensions of the lock chamber walls that serve to guide tows into the lock chamber, as well as provide mooring places for long tows that have to be broken down in order to pass through the lock.


The work planned will focus on filling voids in the guidewall with concrete, guaranteeing the stabilization of the guidewalls for years to come.  The project is slated to start in the winter, and wrapped up by the spring of 2019........
