Corps Of Engineers Expands Shoreline Proposal

A pre-solicitation notice has been modified by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for shoreline restoration and other improvements where the Clinton River empties into Lake St. Clair, in Michigan’s Harrison Township.

An addition has been posted, declaring an organized site visit will be conducted on or about June 15th, to allow contractors and subcontractors to examine the work area. The exact date and time is to be stated in the project solicitation notice, which is now expected to be posted on or around June 8th,

The project is to include the restoration of shoreline, a nearshore area, and an immediate upland area. The concerned area is a former dredged material placement site. An estimated cost of between $1-5 million has been assigned.

“The performance period for this work  will be approximately six months for the primary work, plus an additional 12 months for care and establishment of new vegetation,” according to the Corps.

The contract is expected to be awarded in late July.
